Idea - disable cookies message

Postby Aslanex » Sat Sep 09, 2017 1:59 pm

On many websites using advanced techniques to prevent hiding ads, disabling cookies solves the problem. As this action often can cause other problems such as not being able to login, it cannot be used globally. But on some websites visitors come just to read an article or watch a video, and therefore cookies are not really needed. In such cases, ABP could recommend the user to block cookies, by showing a popup with the information. Or if possible, it could also offer a button to disable cookies with one-click.

It's a nice idea and there may already be extensions out there that do that.

It appears to be unrelated to ad blocking though so I'd see this feature as a stand-alone extension rather than as part of Adblock Plus.
