I think you're probably correct. But at some point it might get ridiculous consistently agreeing to every websites data policy. And I wonder how many aren't going to adhere quite as well as they should.

I've also seen a lot of people online complain saying that small business owners now have more hoops to jump through, and I just don't see how?

Good point. Do you think this should be a browser issue as well? Maybe some of the responsibility could rest with browser policies. Instead of a user settings action. For example user inputs that don't just default to add/remove trusted sites. Like the options could include if/else on GDPR policies related to domain/url?

re: hoops
Regulations! Synonym for monetization.... The very reason why we fight the gov on regulating the internet. When you come up with a plan for that, let me know - we'll make >$$$ . lol

I believe I've read somewhere that browsers will have an auto-opt-in and out, and maybe that will alleviate some stress.

The best idea I've got for that is making a new country aha.

I haven't seen the browser implementation of opt/in-out yet but I was thinking it could even be an onboarding process. For example the way Chrome has a settings UI with sections. Also I was "pondering" it as part of the installation flow as well.

Yea, we do need a "new country" -- as in "United World of the Universe" or "Connected Earth". lol
