This is a good article about how frustrating the modern web is. So many websites nowadays are riddled with ads, requests to disable ad-blockers, newsletter sign-up forms (typically with some “free gift” for doing so) and the latest scourge of the modern web, the cookie opt-in.

I appreciate that there are certain legal reasons for why websites now ask your approval to use cookies, but some of these pop-ups are frankly ridiculous. I’ve come across one design that had a loading bar, which gives a clue as to the sheer number of cookies being generated. Others are so convoluted, it’s often just easier and quicker to click “yes to all”. That’s probably the designers’ intention, unfortunately.
