Google Tests a New Homepage Footer

Google tests a new interface for the homepage's footer. It includes a cookie disclaimer required by a European Union directive and a settings menu similar to one that's available on Google's search results pages.

"Cookies help us deliver our services. By using our services, you agree to our use of cookies," informs Google and links to this page. Many sites have annoying cookie warnings and I'm sure that most people ignore them, so the EU directive was a bad idea.

{ Thanks, Florian. }


  1. I imagine Mayer would have hated this!

  2. wow, even Google...
    Imagine clearing cookies - you'll see again all the useless warnings at all the sites you accepted to store cookies before.
