Apple, Mozilla, Google, and Microsoft are working on a benchmark called Interop 2022. It aims to help make developing for the web easier.

In this new world, people deserve to know if the apps they’re using everyday respect their privacy — or if they’re snooping on them.

For that reason, users should assume that anything they say on a video call app could be made public.

This “Enhanced Cookie Clearing” makes it easy to delete all traces of a website in your browser without the possibility of sneaky third-party cookies sticking around.
