This new EU regulation is absolutely stupid. Most sites I visit require cookies so now I have to accept them each time I visit. Its absolutely crazy and does nothing to add to privacy since every site you visit is monitored by your isp anyway. This is a badly thought out law which is just anoying internet users! rant over
the thing i dont get, is that the option to block/accept cookies is already present in our browsers, and has been for years.
if they are so worried about cookies they should have just told the 5 or 6 browser makers to make their cookie/privacy options more prominent, instead of foisting these changes on every single website -- most of which will probably just ignore the law anyway
What is even better is that it means that a lot of sites that did not previously require cookies (i.e. they worked fine if you blocked cookies), now require cookies in order to track your agreement to the cookies.
