What's the relationship between Microsoft and the new Google's tracking technology called FLoC? Will he exclude her?
Brave does. Vivaldi does. Mozilla does. Even the DuckDuckGo it does. What does Microsoft think about the controversial FLoC technology?
It is not clear.
"We believe in a future where the Web can offer users privacy, transparency and control, and we also support responsible business models for building a vibrant, open and diverse ecosystem," Microsoft told The Verge when asked if it would block technology. FLoC.
“Like Google, we support solutions that give users clear consent and don't override consumer choices. This is also why we do not support solutions they use signalτα ταυτότητας χρήστη χωρίς κάποια συγκατάθεση, όπως το fingerprinting. Η τεχνολογία βρίσκεται σε ταξίδι και θα υπάρξουν προτάσεις για τα προγράμματα browsing which will not need individual user identifiers as well as proposals for consent-based identifiers. We will continue to explore these approaches with the community. Recently, for example, we were pleased to introduce a possible approach, as described in proposal PARAKEET. This proposal is not final but it is an evolving document. "
These are the words you need to say a lot without saying anything. If you are looking for a yes or a no Microsoft will not do you the favor. Or at least for an answer like "we're still looking at it".
The above statement is an unfortunate example of Microsoft's inability to communicate effectively.
