Overview

Automatically denies cookie access for supported sites that provide that option.

This addon automatically denies access for all optional cookies in supported sites that provide a GDPR-style prompt for setting that option. The default site list at time of writing includes all stackexchange related sites (stackoverflow, etc.), zoom.us and ikea.com. For websites which are not in the default ruleset, you as a user can configure support for them with just a few using the "Configure this site manually" option. If you do this I encourage you use the settings page to submit this custom rule to me so I can get it added to the default ruleset in future releases :) Also included is a per-website whitelist; if a site is whitelisted you will see its option dialogues as if cookie cutter GDPR auto-deny were not installed at all.

news websites are the worst for this and there is no change after installing this on edge. I cant find a page anywhere for this extension to manually add websites or go in "the" settings. What settings, where???? This is just a download and review page. Manage extension doesnt have any of the promised features so that cant be it. Extension website is incredibly technical so if that is it then Im very annoyed because that defeats the purpose of an auto extension (not every user is an IT pro) ... Show more

Hello, I'm sorry you found this frustrating. I will try to make the documentation more clear. Just for reference for anyone else reading this and so you can get back to the settings page easily, here is how you can access the settings page: In chrome, left-click on the addons button (looks like a jigsaw puzzle piece), then click on the hamburger menu (three vertical dots) next to the addon icon for cookie cutter and select "Options". This will show the options ui (aka the settings page) in an embedded view. This is the same for all addons which implement an options page, and is not specific to cookie cutter. If you have pinned cookie cutter then you will not need to do the first step, and can instead right-click the cookie cutter icon which appears directly in the browser toolbar and select "Options" from the menu that appears. Alternatively: in chrome or firefox, left-click on the addon icon for cookie cutter and click the link which says "View All Settings for All Domains". This will open the exact same options page mentioned before, as a separate tab. The DOM rule setting refers to the document object model ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Document_Object_Model ) and the fact that these rules are based on what elements appear on the page instead of what website you're on. They aren't enabled by default because there's a chance that this could break websites in the case that an item with a similar name or id to a cookie consent dialog happens to be on a site unexpectedly.

Hello, I'm sorry to hear that you don't feel this addon is working. Could you please provide additional information? What sites specifically was this not working on? In what manner was this not working? If those sites aren't currently supported then we'll need to add support for them. If they are already officially supported then the websites themselves must have changed the cookie consent dialogs and we'll need to update our default rules to match their changes. Please be aware that many websites do not want you to use an addon like this (because they want to guide you towards accepting all cookies) and actively try to make addons like this not work on their website. We depend on users to report broken websites so that we can keep this addon working as expected as websites change their code.

Would have been great but I'm still getting a bunch of popups. I don't see the point with a plugin for this if it doesn't do what it says on the can. Sure, I can add sites manually but that defeats the point. Uninstalling.

Hello, Which sites specifically are not currently supported? I can look into adding support if I know which sites currently do not work as expected. Please try enabling the heuristic (DOM Element) rules in the settings page if your primary concern is the number of sites supported. Instructions for doing this are at https://cookie-cutter.sourceforge.io/en/#dom-rules While there are some caveats, this adds support for many additional sites without manual configuration. Lastly I think it's important to note that this addon never claimed to support every website on the internet out-of-the-box, and doing so was never a design requirement. That is an impossible goal that no addon built for this purpose can ever honestly claim to meet, as new websites can be created and existing websites can change their code without notice. I think it's unfair to judge this addon as inadequate for failing to meet a standard that it never purported to achieve, and that no addon could reliably meet. Saying it doesn't do "what it says on the tin" is inaccurate. It said it /reduces/ (or "cuts") the cookie consent prompts you see, not that you'll never see another one ever again. The unique feature about this addon is the fact that support for new sites /can/ be added immediately, and support grows over time as people submit rules for the sites they visit. As far as I'm aware no other similar addon has this functionality (and certainly none did when this project was started; I checked). And as a result this addon has full support over 200 websites upon installation, thanks in large part to people who did the manual configuration on sites they visited and then let me know about it via submitting the rules they made. This of course includes many popular websites like youtube and stackoverflow, as well as many lesser-known sites. We support as many websites as we know about and are able to. You'll note that this number is drastically less than the number of total websites on the internet with GDPR-style cookie prompts, which appears to be the problem you're concerned about. If this addon isn't for you that's okay, but saying that it doesn't do its job I think is misguided and demonstrates a misunderstanding of its purpose. This addon is useful, but it's not magic.
