Two small but significant bits of news this week.

The first is that the Court of Justice of the European Union has decided that GDPR requires that cookies are only set if the user makes a positive decision to allow them. So pre-ticked boxes or simple notices no to suffice, users must positive do something to allow cookies. Most small websites probably fail to comply.

This applies even if no personal information is involved. We assume that cookies indicating that consent was refused are still allowed, otherwise it will be difficult, to say the least, to comply.

The other is a change in Google Chrome that prevents https pages loading insecure (non-https or with invalid certificates) content. Most web pages use external Javascripts, fonts, images, or similar and often rely on them to work properly. Firefox has been blocking some insecure content for a while and that did break many sites, expect more sites to break as all browsers continue to tighten up on this.
