Summary

This addon automatically denies access for all optional cookies in sites that provide a GDPR-style prompt for setting that option.

The default site list at time of writing includes all stackexchange related sites (stackoverflow, etc.), zoom.us and ikea.com.

For websites which are not in the default ruleset, you as a user can configure support for them with just a few using the "Configure this site manually" option. If you do this I encourage you use the settings page to submit this custom rule to me so I can get it added to the default ruleset in future releases :)

Also included is a per-website whitelist; if a site is whitelisted you will see its option dialogues as if cookie cutter GDPR auto-deny were not installed at all.

User reviews
Works nicely with two sites I've added myself. Two annoyances : 1- Sharing new sites lands on a page which requires Google's captcha to validate : I cannot and will not go through the hassle of captchas every time I wish to share a new site. 2- Cookie Cutter manual setting prompts need a dark mode : pages blackened by 'Dark Reader' render badly Cookie Cutter's manual settings display (white text on white background). EDIT : Given the developer's reply I've emailed him an explicit answer and shifted my rating from 4 to 5. The display visibility occurs only on sites natively light once darkened with the 'Dark Mode' extension, and therefor the above-mentioned visibility issue concerns more 'Dark Mode' than 'Cookie Cutter'.
