Submission + - Browser settings not enough for EU cookies law (pcpro.co.uk)

nk497 writes: "Mozilla and Microsoft's do-not-track systems aren't strong enough for the new EU anti-cookie laws, according to the UK data regulator. The Information Commissioner has said websites can't depend on browser settings to help them comply with new EU rules requiring consent before non-essential cookies are used — not least because users may not have the latest versions of browsers. Instead, web firms should consider using pop-ups or asking before cookies are used, which the ICO admitted could frustrate users."
