No – Safari 14 does not block Google Analytics

Simo Ahava:

Let me start by proclaiming with clarity and sincerity:

No, Safari 14 (or any other version of Safari) will not block Google Analytics from loading and running on a website.

In fact, the biggest revelation was the new Privacy Report, which is designed to elucidate how much the browser is working towards mitigating the damage caused by cross-site trackers.

For better or for worse, one of the previews showed that is listed among the trackers that are being prevented on websites.

Queue panic and the spread of misinformation like wildfire through the dry brush of first-party analytics.

A lot of websites, biog and small, can now breathe a sigh of relief.
