Third party cookies?

everyone i know: *constantly has 90000 tabs open and is talking about cleaning them up, with only having a few hundred left being an accomplishment*
me: *has issues with closing tabs too eagerly, tab count is always in the tens*

I just came across this in some old Java code (not mine, thankfully) ...
