    Hi, I have read your article but Cookiebot uc.js still shows up in pagespeed as a blocking resource. It takes up more than a second of time. I can imagine that a user will have this the first time but the actual pagespeed should be higher.

    Pagespeed should not be able to detect cookiebot in order to verify actual pagespeed.

    I completely agree, cookiebot whatever agreements you have with Google do not seem to be working in the real world. You've become 53% of the 3rd party problem on my site which itself accounts for 80% of the load speed reduction. This article is nonsense.

    This is still an issue. Any update from CookieBot on this?

    Is it possible to load /uc.js from a local ressource in order to speed it up?

    I totally agree with WiseTribes comment.

    Cookibot causes a rendering block of more than 2 seconds!

    A total disappointment. ;(

    I agree with WiseTribes and Borja. There is a significant rendering block originating from /uc.js.

    Same here, 1.2s delay - not the 100ms promised in the article. Is there any update to this?

    Dear Cookiebot support

    I am still loving your solution in respect of GDPR.

    However, I am facing the same performance issue here when running lighthouse in my Chrome browser, generating a report for mobile. It complains about render-blocking resources where uc.js stand out with 910 ms.

    How can I improve this on my site https://www.beezital.fr/ (WordPress + Hummingbird)?

    br, Fred

    EDIT: some précision: uc.js is fine when running Lighthouse for desktop (I reach 100%) but shows bad performance when running Lighthouse for mobile.

    Just to echo this one - I posted here 3 months ago. Any chance of a reply or are these support boards officially not supported any more? If so, could you please indicate that somewhere?

    I'm experiencing the same thing. Would be very interesting with an update from the Cookiebot support here. As many others mention this affects mobile and results in a poor page speed result.

    The blocking for me is approx. 1080ms
