--enable-strict-site-isolation Experimentally ensures that each renderer process: 1) Only handles rendering for pages from a single site, apart from iframes. (Note that a page can reference content from multiple origins due to images, JavaScript files, etc. Cross-site iframes are also loaded in-process.) 2) Only has authority to see or use cookies for the page's top-level origin. (So if a.com iframes b.com, the b.com network request will be sent without cookies.) This is expected to break compatibility with many pages for now. Unlike the --site-per-process flag, this allows cross-site iframes, but it blocks all cookies on cross-site requests.
