@rmdes Major browsers are already blocking third-party cookies.
Also AFAIK you basically don't need to ask for consent if it's an explicit action (such as login).

It's really just some websites being assholes to their users.

@lanodan not sure we're talking about the same thing.
Obviously I'm already using DNT, uBlock and other extensions to help me minimize tracking but what I'm talking about is (even more since GDPR) the invasive pop-up like "privacy" management offered by websites to handle tracking : no reject all option, deny features buried behind too much clicks and the boringness of having to specify that manually across the web.
It should be backed in the browser.

@rmdes Yes, it is already backed by major browsers, no extensions needed.
Most of the GDPR nags are illegal btw, by law reject has be the default option.

That said the thing of blocking third-party domains has already been circumvented by blatant stalkers by moving to subfolders or hostname aliases to put in the same domain.

The actual thing in browsers should be to explicitly allow cookies by their name, like it's done in lynx and maybe can still be toggled in Firefox.
And considering that websites are already nagging you horribly, it probably wouldn't be such a disaster as it would have been back in like 2010.
@rmdes Also another solution, and one that I've done in my own browser it that all sessions are ephemeral and each explicitly new tab has it's own session (basically containers on steroids).
It works quite well and is probably the best in terms of avoiding fingerprinting but it's a bit annoying for websites that tend to store a lot of settings into the browser.
