Finding the Alt-Cookie🍪

A third-party Cookie alternative

Do you remember the day websites started asking you for your Cookies? I don’t really, while I do remember a time before cookies, it seems like another life, something we had as kids. 🤔

Google for one, hasn’t been too keen on the idea of an alt-Cookie; they’re not intending on making their own or encourage the creation of one. This lines up with Google’s “Privacy-first web” promise.

From my point of view, it does seem that a fair amount of conversation online would prefer a Google lead solution to Cookies or something that comes close to providing advertisers with the means of better tracking.
