Adtech Execs Are Terrified That Google Will Create A New 'Monopoly' If It Abolishes Cookies

If websites are no longer able to tag users with cookies — the small bits of computer code they use to track internet surfing — the knowledge of the browsing history and consumer profiles of the people visiting their sites could rest solely with the companies whose services users are continuously logged in to.
