CORS or Cross-Origin Resource Sharing is a mechanism to make it possible to make requests from one website to another in the browser.

If you’re writing an API for example, and want other websites to be able to access your API via browser side requests, you might want to define trusted origins that requests are allowed from or simply trust all origins.
