Chrome 83 new feature might “break” some Web apps temporarily

Posted by David Chandler on June 16, 2020

Chrome m83 includes a new feature to block third-party cookies by default in Incognito windows (https://venturebeat.com/2020/05/19/google-chrome-83/). This is no doubt a good thing for browser security; however, it’s a problem for some apps like bigquerygeoviz that may rely on services from other domains (in this case, bigquerygeoviz is hosted at appspot.com but is making API calls to google.com). Only workaround for now is to turn the setting off when you launch an incognito window, like this:

Many technical trainers like myself use incognito windows for demos and keeping numerous credentials separate, so we may have to get used to changing this setting for a while.
