    This would be awesome. I block cookies on most sites but there's always one of those windows that you have to click to dismiss cookies info.

    If this could be automated it would be the greatest things since the internet.

    Cookie messages are very different with different content and buttons, sometimes an extra page for it etc.
    Probably possible with some kind of AI which analyzes the text shown, but don't think it is easily done, if not at all.

    My thinking is you could have a system that learns what boxes you click on. You tell the system, "this next element that I click on should be automated".

    After that when you visit that page, that element is handled automatically.

    There are filters to deal with the cookie notifications with I don't care about cookies and Fanboy's Cookiemonster List being two examples.
