This addon automatically accepts cookies:
"Starting with version 3.0.2, this extension notifies websites about which cookies the visitor allows them to install. By knowing this, websites can skip displaying the cookie warning and act according to the given permission. As a result, you will be bothered by cookie warnings even less. "
Privacy oriented users, please bear in mind the following:
The Verge shows a tracking-consent message when visiting the site from the EU. Most people will click "I Accept" to make it go away, but if you don't and hide the message via CSS, you won't be tracked and the site is way faster: 32 vs 5 secs load time 61 vs 2 JS files 2 vs 1 MB
Ublock Origin cookies block removes the CSS and does not accept the cookies, you can also use the element picker.
[update: looks like I have no clue what I'm talking about, so I recommend you ignore my comment above]
