Just out of curiosity: would you hazard a guess at how many internet users who were not previously aware of what cookies are took notice of these consent banners, and so went on to educate themselves about them? I have no idea. More than 'zero', maybe. For some, after years of gradually more intrusive website adverts and 'features', these banners might have been the straw that broke the camel's back, and the user goes on to clean up their web experience wholesale.

Only people who know what cookies are will set up their browser to deal with them.
