What will Microsoft do with FLoC technology?
What's the relationship between Microsoft and the new Google's tracking technology called FLoC? Will he exclude her?
Brave does it. Vivaldi does it. Mozilla does. Even DuckDuckGo does. What is Microsoft's view on 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 consensus and do not override consumer choices. This is why we do not support solutions that use user IDs without consent, such as fingerprinting. The technology is on the go and there will be suggestions for browsers that will not require individual user IDs as well as suggestions for consent based IDs. We will continue to explore these approaches with the community. Recently, for example, we have been 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.
