Windows 7: Cookie banners

Cookie banners

As you have probably noticed, there is a new "online privacy" or rather "data protection" legislation in effect in the EU since the end of May. As a result, I've had to delete lots of emails from any website I ever left my email address on regarding their "new privacy policy". What's more irritating, every web site now informs me that they are using cookies (duh!) and are of course in compliance with the law so I have to agree. Before this law there were cookie banners but they were small and I could simply ignore them. Now they take up to half of the screen and I can't read anything before I click "yes".

Does anyone know of a way to stop these idiotic banners? Googling does not help, unfortunately, it gives me lots of resources about how to put up such a banner and how to illicit consent.

Now, I *know* websites use cookies (one has to be an idiot not to). I also *know* a perfect way to deal with them which makes all this legislation moot - my FF simply erases all cookies once I close it.

So, rant over, but please, does anyone know how to get rid of those banners?

And there now lies half your problem, they drop a cookie to say you have accepted them, when you delete the cookies you get asked the next time you visit the site.

I'm aware of that. I still don't want to see those banners though.

If your using chrome you can use an extension called .. I don't care about cookies .. it removes most EU cookie banners popups. Also available for Firefox.

Taskbar banners
When I hover my mouse over the icons on the taskbar in windows 7, it used to show me what pages where open (in use) even web pages. It used to show me the entire page but now it only shows me a banner with words describing the page. How can I change it back to the way it was?
