I like cookies, mainly ones that dunk well in coffee.
But a cookie annoyance I have is the cookie consent pop ups. The thing is, they don’t mean anything anymore (I should again add a big IMO.) All the happens is they get in the way, people click whatever will make them go away. How many people click the ‘Oh no I don’t want you to use a cookie to remember me’ it is just CLICK and get it away.
If you have any of the following
- Adsense adverts
- a sign up box (for new blog posts or marketing campaign etc)
- you use google analytics
- some other stats plugin (e.g. jetpack)
- you have a shop
I still think it is a pointless thing making all site comply with something that the users don’t are about, and taking away from the work that web designers do to make sites as user friendly as possible.
Back to dunking some cookies in my coffee.
