Occasionally when GOG downloader starts up I am greeted with a dialog box asking me whether it is ok to permit it to add cookies to my system. That's a bit of a surprise for me because for starters I do not use Internet Explorer and it is trying to set cookies in Internet Explorer, and I don't allow it or see any good reason why it should be setting cookies in any web browser.
If someone from GOG.com could explain what this is trying to do it would be nice to know, but it seems to be a bad practice in general as it makes the assumption someone is using Internet Explorer as their web browser which is not only a bad assumption to make, it is a decreasingly correct one as other browsers take over the marketshare. It shouldn't be setting cookies in any browser though really.
GOG.com feedback appreciated.
Could you make any screenshot of it? The GOG Downloader doesn't need any cookies at all (I am creator of it the Downloader).
