Google sign in nonsense

So many sites are using this now. It has become a pox. You have to click on the "x" to make it go away before you can access a site.

Can this "feature" be disabled?

- Edit - Okay, I signed out of Google. Will this fix it?

I'm not sure what you're talking about. Can you post a screenshot?

It's crazy that so much hostile stuff happens on the internet. It's like they're intentionally trying to piss us off.

How about the modal overlays asking me if I want to sign up for some spam e-mails. Really?

The thing that's really driving me bonkers is the cookie warning and setting BS. This might have been a good idea 15-20 years ago, but today??? I can set my privacy settings for cookies in my browser preferences thank you, I don't want to do it for every FRACKING site...angry villagers smiley

And even if you don't check the box, they send them to you anyway!

...invasive tracking in Safari on Mac...

So it's a no go for other browsers.

Highly recommend Little Snitch. [obdev.at]
