Windows 10 Upcoming Feature Causes Memory Issues

Windows Insiders have been continuing to test features for the upcoming updates. One in particular is the ‘News and Interest’ pop up in the task bar. It will also include weather details, among other information.

According to Tech Radar, the Insiders reported memory issues within this new feature, claiming it used 15MB of RAM.

That’s a decent chunk of memory, especially on older PCs or devices with limited amounts of RAM. If your PC is really struggling for memory, it could result in a degradation in performance.

This won’t be welcomed by people who want their Windows 10 installs to be as clean as possible, and the idea of sacrificing memory to a feature they rarely use won’t be too popular.

Thankfully, this feature will be optional, so you will be able to disable it once it becomes available.

Google’s Privacy Sandbox

More and more web users are concerned with the amount of data websites are collecting. Online privacy seems more scarce as time goes by.

David Temkin shared a study by Pew Research Center on the Google Ads blog, stating “72% of people feel that almost all of what they do online is being tracked by advertisers, technology firms or other companies, and 81% say that the potential risks they face because of data collection outweigh the benefits”.

However, browser companies are working diligently to remove third party cookies. Firefox and Safari have already put that order into place, although no one seems to know how in depth they go with the removal. Google is intending to move in that direction.

Back in August of 2019, Justin Schuh, the Director of Chrome Engineering wrote a blog post introducing their new privacy enhancing tool called Privacy Sandbox. But what is Privacy Sandbox? The Chrome Developer blog explains:

The Privacy Sandbox initiative proposes a set of privacy-preserving APIs to support business models that fund the open web in the absence of tracking mechanisms like third-party cookies. It was introduced in 2019, and Chrome shared updates on progress in January and October last year.

Google will not be utilizing any alternative techniques for tracking, in hopes third party cookies will become obsolete.
