> I would imagine that 10E-(a large number) of websites don't use cookies at all.

Most sites use cookies in one form or another - to count unique visitors if nothing else.

The pop-ups were certainly useless. "Click here if you are happy that you are being tracked with cookies. Oh, this banner will stay here forever until you click to say yes. If you don't want to be tracked, then don't visit our site."

The final irony was once you had clicked the button saying that you had read the cookie policy, the site had to give you a cookie to remember that you had done so.
