All of these developments shine more light on the absurdity of the recent EU "cookie laws".
It isn't absurd but necessary in my opinion. Do not forget it is only called "cookie directive" but actually effects all tracking methods.
I too thought until a few month back - the EU "cookie direktive" is absurd. After all browsers already allow you to take effective control of cookies. But then I learned about "evercookies" and other means of tracing users and now I think it is a very necessary peace of legislation.
