Google says it will stop tracking you on the web via ads next year

https://www.neowin.net/news/google-says ... next-year/
Google promises to stop selling your browsing history to advertisers
FLoC-based advertising puts users in groups so the group is targeted rather than the individual

https://www.techspot.com/news/88805-goo ... isers.html
Google claims it will stop tracking individual users for ads
Google says anonymized, group-based interest tracking will be good enough.

Google promises it won’t just keep tracking you after replacing cookies
Google says it wants a ‘privacy-first web’

I think it might happen because advertisers don't go after something very specific, but after some defined demographics, like 15-35 year old gamers. At a story I've read Google says the new method gave them 95% of the income of the old one. If Google isn't losing much money, they might just do it. The problem: will other advertisement companies be able to do the same after cookies are outlawed?
