Legacy Browser Support

posted on May 10, 2021

The Osano consent management platform now includes a legacy browser support toggle.

Legacy Browser Toggle

Within a website’s code includes everything required for the site to function. That lump sum of code is called a “bundle.” The bigger the bundle, the slower a site will load.

Because very few sites use Internet Explorer 11, Osano now allows customers to disable Legacy Browser Support off, which will remove support for older browser such as IE11 from the bundle, decreasing the time it takes the page to load.

Why does this matter?

One element of SEO is page performance. Customers who don’t need to support IE 11 now have the ability to turn off support for end-of-life legacy browsers. Osano performance is improved when legacy browser support is disabled.

First-Layer Categories

posted on May 10, 2021

Greater customization in how a user interacts with the consent banner can be accomplished with the implementation of first-layer category control.

first-layer-categories-cookie-consent

Cookie rules in the U.K. and the EU require sites with European visitors to display the purpose and categories of the cookies they'll drop if users accept. There are two "layers" involved when it comes to most cookie compliance laws.

  1. The first layer is the immediate interaction with the user, the very familiar box that asks them to "accept" or "decline" cookies.
  2. The second layer is user-initiated, in the event they want to know more about how their data will be collected and used. 

By default, Osano uses a popup containing all opt-in categories for users accessing sites from the EU and other select locales. By toggling First-Layer Categories to "off," the popup becomes a "Manage Preferences" display.  A second-layer "drawer" allows users to view and consent to the site's cookie categories (i.e., cookies used for marketing, personalization, analytics). 

Why does this matter?

For Osano customers in the EU and the European Economic Area, the First-Layer categories feature offers more flexibility over how the Osano consent banner appears to customers. Sites may experience higher opt-in consent rates with First-Layer Categories off.
