Block all annoying cookie/privacy/tracker popups
« on: August 21, 2019, 08:28:20 AM »

I'm sure i'm not alone in hating the annoying cookie or privacy pop up windows appearing whilst browsing, especially after you have cleared your browsing history & cookies.

I'm using 'I don't care about cookies'  extension in Chrome (also available in other browsers) and it works very well:

https://www.i-dont-care-about-cookies.eu/

You can supplement this by adding the followling URL to your ad blocker - if using uBlock Origin then go to Options>Filter Lists>Custom>Import

https://raw.github.com/r4vi/block-the-eu-cookie-s h i t-list/master/filterlist.txt
[ remove the spaces between s h i t ]

Happy blocking  :)

ps
I'm no longer getting the cookie popup on kitz forum after clearing browser cookies   ;D

Good tip.  It might work well together with one of the automatic cookie deletion plugins.  I use "Cookie Auto Delete" in Firefox

I agree, the idiotic cookie law things are just such a total time waster and a distraction. I donít know how to get rid of them in iOS Safari on my iPad and I wish I did. Anyone know ?

I use the ad blocker "1Blocker X" in Safari which is very good and Iím wondering if I might be able to configure this to attack anti-cookie cobblers too. The app can nuke various other kinds of universal nuisances in many websites, as well as ads.
