I am using Windows 10. Normally I go to very few sites: Parallax, Youtube, Breitbart, etc. And I never download anything except when I know it is a fairly secure site... but I broke my own rule and downloaded a video... I had to learn how to do this, because there was no option listed on the page...the recommended method involved tossing my cookies.
Now YouTube treats me like a complete stranger... all of my usual "recommended just for you... because you are special" stuff is gone... and won't come back.
I don't think these guys are as smart as they are made out to be.
I want my cookies back!!!!
