More about Opera’s cookie dialog blocker

The recent introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was intended to provide people with improved control over their online privacy. However, an unforeseen consequence has been a sharp increase in the often complex and confusing attempts by websites to make their visitors agree to their privacy practices and policies.

The cookie dialog blocker uses a combination of CSS rules and JavaScript heuristics to identify and remove cookie alerts. This feature, initially implemented on Opera for Android, was tested on 15,000 websites. Opera continues to add to this list.
