Please help make my browsing easier
« on: November 17, 2020, 08:57:07 PM »
Every time someone posts a link to a YouTube vid I get asked to sign up (No thanks) and then the usual 'accept cookies' (OK/I agree) and Google is a PITA in that every day I have to wait for the question to be asked 'accept cookies?' and it's slow to load.
Is there a way round all this? I know it's necessary but I really don't need it at my time of life.

Sounds like your browser is blocking cookies (or you are using Private mode!) if Google asks you to accept cookies each time.

Which browser do you use?

Must admit I don't have any of those problems with youtubes, but maybe it's because I signed up many years ago and just leave it signed in. Plus I will have already allowed cookies for major sites I use a lot. 

There are so many checks and directives that content providers etc. have to implement nowadays, if you don't do something about allowing cookies (and maybe even signing up) then you will get lots of these "nag"s.

@Newportnobby Click on the red 'O' at the top of the sidebar. Third item down "New private window". Click on that and a new window opens.

Don't know how genuinely private it is, but it gets rid of all the browsing data rubbish when you close it.

But yes, I get all those annoying requests too.

Cheers,

Chris
