Chrome, Safari and Edge to disable user privacy feature. Firefox is still good.

So it's being reported that almost all web browsers (including Google Chrome, Apple's Safari and Microsoft's Edge) are going to be removing the feature that allows users to disable a click-tracking method used by many websites. This tracking method, called "hyperlink auditing", allows websites to track your clicks as you go from one website to another.

As privacy becomes more and more of a hot topic, this move seems very counter to trends and consumer's best interest. Luckily, the popular Mozilla Firefox browser will not only continue to offer the setting, but already has it disabled by default (you want this "disabled" to get privacy). I've always been a proponent of Firefox and continue to recommend it to my clients as my web browser of choices, for this and many other reasons.
