    I feel that browser vendors need to step up to the plate to clean up this mess. Specifically, consent screens need to go into the browser, with APIs to request consent per category. This would allow users to choose what kind of tracking they allow and won't allow globally, so we don't need to do this per website (although having an option to do it per website would probably make sense still).

    While we're at it, can we make sure the desktop notification popup can't just be triggered by JS, and would require an interaction from the user. I'm generally not in favor of creating weird limitations like this, but the abuse has been so wide spread that unfortunately it seems to be necessary at this point.
