CNET reports that Mozilla Firefox now blocks website cookies that let advertisers and publishers track users around the web. The feature, called Enhanced Tracking Protection, will block third-party cookies by default in newly installed versions of Firefox and will be available to already installed versions in the coming months. “People feel increasingly vulnerable,” Firefox Senior Vice President Dave Camp wrote in a blog post. “We believe that in order to truly protect people, we need to establish a new standard that puts people’s privacy first.” Apple’s Safari was the first to block third-party cookies, followed by web browser Brave and Google’s Chrome.
