Did you see this new feature from Firefox, "Cookie Protection" you can opt for, this is not good news for affiliate sales.

Affiliates are fucked with this move. So much for 90 day cookies and you getting the sale if they clicked on your affiliate link.

This is only blocking 3rd party tracking cookies.

Basically, only the site that sets the cookie can read it which is pretty much how all affiliate systems work in anycase

It should NOT affect your affiliate sales.

Not sure but I think chrome might already be doing this. Im sure i read somewhere that they are blocking (or at least restricting) 3rd party cookies.

This is only for 3rd party cookies. So if you look for something on amazon and then go onto another site, it wont be able to blast you with adverts for whatever you were looking for on amazon

Normal cookies will still work fine (the internet simply grind to a halt if they blocked all cookies)

You ever check how many cookies are on your browser, it's a huge list.

Every site uses cookies these days. I think we use around 6 or 7 (which is actually quite low compared to some sites).

There's affiliate cookies, login cookies, google analytics cookies, tracking cookies etc.

I think its ridiculous that sites have to display the cookie compliance notice these days as I cant think of a single site that DOESNT use cookies

Just my opinion
