The restrictions on the final version of the browser were revealed by Google during the launch of Chrome 80. In February, the company began to require the SameSite attribute on websites to indicate the purpose of cross-site tracking cookies. The requirement, however, was temporarily removed in April to avoid problems during the pandemic.

Now, almost two months later, Google has already announced a new date for limiting cookies, as previously planned. According to the company, the changes will be applied from July 14, 2020 on Google Chrome 80 and newer versions of the browser.

In addition to the change in the treatment of cookies, Google will also make available the new final version of the browser on July 14, Google Chrome 84. The update will provide all users with a feature to combat websites that force the activation of notifications in the browser to computer, phones and tablets.
