Google with important anonymous news – ITavisenITavisen



Websites can not do that anymore.

In today's Chrome Browser version, you have the option to check if an anonymous visitor mode is turned on.

However, starting with Chrome 76, the web pages will not be able to check if the file system API is available. When a site loses this capability, it means that it will be impossible to determine whether a user is involved or not anonymous.

The challenge for many newspapers

When that opportunity disappears, it means that you can actually overcome constraints and access a number of articles.

How will the publications solve this new challenge, and if possible, remains to be seen.

Chrome 76 will be launched in late July but is already available for beta testers.
