Discussion on: Modern Cookie UX is Rubbish

Great article and as an internet user I really appreciate that you're trying to put the user's needs into the equation somewhere.

Personally, I like the cheap cookie-cutter solutions because with one or two right clicks I can block the annoying consent popups and that silly tinted overlay. That is usually enough to view whatever page I'm trying to see and if it doesn't work I simply write the site off and never return to it.

In my opinion, I shouldn't have to click anything to decline unnecessary cookies. Places that insist on wasting my time with unnecessary things don't deserve my time or clicks. If some ad team doesn't understand that, well, then that is a good example of why the ad-based revenue model is outdated and should be pushed to the grave as quickly as possible.
