URL tracking: safe for now?

Users of the Firefox browser will be able to choose whether or not they want URLs that they copied to contain tracking parameters. According to Firefox URL Tracking Removal – Is This A Trend To Watch? on the Search Engine Journal site, “The momentum of removing tracking information from URLs appears to be gaining speed.” However, as one commenter says, “The idea of completely removing all URL parameters seems improbable, as it would disrupt key functionalities on numerous websites, including banking services and search capabilities.”

“At this point in time”, says the article, “the advice is probably along the lines of keep monitoring how far browsers are going but there is no expectation that things will get out of hand.”
