The end of the cookie era was announced and the search for ways out of the cookie environment started, beginning with tracking by the use of browser fingerprints, browser cache tracking and, finally, ID tracking. Especially Apple, Google and Microsoft have already implemented respective ID tracking technologies in their software environment and operation systems.
