What I want is two related and similar things:
- Ability to turn cookies off by default and turn them back on only for selected sites.
If it is the opposite – If I need blacklists instead of the whitelist – then I will always be blacklisted. And the first time I go to a website, code will be run before I decide to allow it.
When you think about it, it's pretty nuts that we allow automatic execution of any code a web developer wrote. We do not do anything else, really ̵1; certainly not to the same extent as possibly hundreds of websites visited daily, each with a dozen or more scripts.[…]
It confuses me as spurs, ad networks, cryptocurrency miners, and picture boxes are all written for the web in the same language and that there is little granularity in how they are treated. You can either turn off all scripts and lose key functionality on some websites, or you can turn everything on and accept the risk that your CPU will be monopolized in the background.
