Firefox 22 Will boost Users Privacy By blocking Third party Cookies by Default

The upcoming Firefox 22 will boost user’s privacy by blocking all third-party cookies. This means, by default only sites you visit will be able to install cookies in your browser; Firefox won’t allow installing cookies from advertisement displayed on webpages that tracks you while browsing.
Firefox isn’t the first browser implementing this feature; it has already been available in Safari browser and partially in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer will block third party cookies that do not have a strict privacy policy. However, Chrome allows all cookies by default.

Note: It is already possible to disable third party cookies by going to Firefox’s settings menu. You can do that by going to Options – Privacy tab – Use custom settings for history – uncheck “Accept third-party cookies”.
