“If people go to Facebook or Google or Pinterest or whatever and they search for consumer stuff, there is a common expectation that the business model is funded by ads. I think everybody recognizes that,” White said. “But when I'm at home and I go to WebMD… there is a strong expectation that my ISP is the transport layer and not trying to monetize that. I think it's very different. I think it's a very dangerous place to go when consumer websites that are ad-driven become the model our basic Internet connectivity is based on.”

The chromium team is currently experimenting with First-Party-Only cookies in the last chromium build². The goal of these new type of cookies is to allow web servers to mitigate the risk of cross-site request forgery (CSRF) and related information leakage attacks by asserting that a particular cookie should only be sent in a "first-party" context.

If you're not sure yet what is CSRF, here's a good introduction:
After that, you might want to read the short draft specification¹ and learn more about the motivations and the limitations of these cookies.

Keep in mind that this is not a security tool but it should help protect you from attack on wifi as HTTP connections will be tunneled through an HTTPS connection to Google. 
Reduce your internet data usage in Chrome Desktop by using Google servers to optimize pages you visit with the brand new Data Saver (Beta) Chrome Extension available now.

When this extension is enabled, Chrome will use Google servers to compress pages you visit before downloading them. SSL and incognito pages will not be included.

Are you eager to see what is happening behind the scenes? Check out the internal chrome page chrome:net-internals#bandwidth. It contains Data Reduction Proxy settings such as primary and secondary URLs and recent events so that you can debug by yourself proxy issues you may have.

Be aware this extension is still in Beta mode, please send the chrome team any feedback you may have by pressing <Alt>+<Shift>+i. 

Data Saver (Beta) is available now on the Chrome Web Store at
