For those who don’t know, Cookies, are text files containing little pieces of data that can be used to identify your computer. Basically, they were built to improve your web browsing experience, they can also be used to monitor your online activity without your permission. Google is also working on a plan to kill off third-party cookie tracking on its Chrome web browser as part of its Privacy Sandbox project.

FireFox’s new feature pairs with a network partitioning tool, which works by splitting the Firefox browser cache on a per-website basis to prevent tracking across the web. According to the company, these types of cookies are more difficult to delete and block as they are obscure in parts of the browser.

With the release, you’ll now be able to watch several videos at the same time, with the multi-view launch timed to coincide with the NCAA’s March Madness basketball tournament next month.
