I don’t care about cookies browser extension
There is a free browser extension for Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera to hide cookie notifications. This I don’t care about cookies browser extension – designed by Daniel Kladnik – hides most cookie notifications, banners etc that are displayed on many websites.
Below is an image as tested on CNN.com. In the first window, you will see a cookie notice, in the second window you will not see a cookie notice. The browser extension works fine on this website. The I don’t care about cookies extension does not cause any problems with the interaction on the website, which is a huge bonus.
The disadvantage of this browser extension is that the I don’t care about cookies browser extension frequently shows advertisements to keep the browser extension free. A frequently reported problem by users using the “I don’t care about cookies” browser extension to disable cookie notifications in their web browser.
If you want to exclude certain websites, i.e. show a cookie notification in your web browser, you can access this option by clicking on the icon of the I don’t care about cookies browser extension in the Chrome, Firefox (or another) web browser.
A context menu opens with the options to exclude websites (white list) or to remove the extension if necessary.
Again, a helpful browser extension to hide cookie notifications, but it is supported with advertisements, which for some users may come unexpectedly because they assume they are blocking advertisements and cookie notifications.
Prebake an AdBlock Plus and uBlock Origin cookie filter list
Prebake is a project where a filter list has been compiled (and maintained) of websites that display cookie notifications. It is important to know that this list accepts cookie notifications by default. This means that no notification is displayed, but you automatically agree to place cookies on your computer from the websites concerned in the list.
Before proceeding, it is good to know what cookies mean and what cookies are placed on your device for. In this article I will not go into that, however, it is that many websites that recommend this cookie filter list called Prebake, do not report this to their visitors.
Adding Prebake cookie filter to Adblock Plus
Of course, you first need to install AdBlock Plus, a browser extension to block advertisements in your web browser. AdBlock Plus is available for the following web browsers on different devices; Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Safari, Yandex and Maxthon.
Now go to the website prebake.eu and click on the link subscribe. AdBlock Plus detects the cookie filter and displays a message to use the filter list.
Add prebake cookie filter to uBlock Origin
Of course, you first need to install uBlock Origin. uBlock Origin is a browser extension to block ads in your web browser. uBlock Origin is available for the following web browsers on different devices; Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Safari, and possibly more.
In addition, uBlock Origin has been tested as the least intensive ad-blocker for the CPU.
Now go to the website prebake.eu and click the subscribe link. uBlock Origin detects the Prebake cookie filter and displays a notification to use the filter list.
Using these two methods you can disable cookie notifications in your web browser. I hope to have helped you if you have a question or comment you can place it at the bottom of this instruction in the comment field.
