Google 2020 (or 2022, when it gets implemented) equates to Apple 2017, when that company stopped third party cookies on its Safari browser. And Google, which also doesn’t own or operate the sites you visit, will still collect tons of information about you as you browse.
Third parties place cookies on millions of sites and then sell the data they collect to digital advertisers.
