I get it, most of cookie dialogs ARE UGLY. But putting in the joke does not make the problem go away! This is terrible not because dialogs are terrible, but because what you are doing with cookies is terrible.
How about not using cookies? Grumpy never had cookies and works just fine. You never see a cookie dialog here, you see content, immediately. Yep, a website. In the internet. Built in 2018. Working everywhere.
Of course, we use cookie for authentication in our admin panel. But you can ask users to accept it when they sign in! If I’m just browsing, please, stop annoying me with those cookies. I’ve eaten enough.
P.S. OF COURSE you can’t grab that cookie from abcdinamo.com. You have to click it, even though the label says “grab”.
Five years ago one of the reasons I would recommend MacOS was: it just doesn't get as many annoying notification from every little thing that's installed in the system as Windows.
For every single application that wants there are now:
- three alert styles
- three notification places
- badge app icon
- notification sound
Given that there are over twenty apps in that list (and it's a pretty fresh computer), it means that I'm potentially getting:
- 20 notifications
- in three different places (so, 60 notification in total)
- with sound
Good job Apple, good job.
pretty mesmerizing, yeah
