Very on point. Enough effort to enable rage face
Lol, this is good.. I was bamboozled.. :P
Close, but not enough click-shaming: "No thanks, I'd rather pay full price", etc.
I'm afraid to admit, I spent way too much time on that website then I would've on any other site with fewer pop-ups.
I feel that browser vendors need to step up to the plate to clean up this mess. Specifically, consent screens need to go into the browser, with APIs to request consent per category. This would allow users to choose what kind of tracking they allow and won't allow globally, so we don't need to do this per website (although having an option to do it per website would probably make sense still).
While we're at it, can we make sure the desktop notification popup can't just be triggered by JS, and would require an interaction from the user. I'm generally not in favor of creating weird limitations like this, but the abuse has been so wide spread that unfortunately it seems to be necessary at this point.
Took me more time than what I would like to admit to understand it... Well played and so true.
Same. Just brilliant.
Pro tip: try turning JS off and see how that changes things.
...and that is why I have this JS toggle extension installed. A real sanity-saver (on desktop at least). It kills off the BS like nothing else can.
Aren't like all of your legit web apps broken, then, though?
The extension toggles JS per-domain. I disable it a lot for content sites, but obviously not for web-apps. I disable it as needed. It's just one click to enable-disable on the tab I'm looking at.
Very good - is it possible to close all the pop ups?
After 100 loops yes. You should try it! ;)
took me few seconds to realize... damn it!
Exactly, it is a crazy time to live in!
Very well written
Veridian Dynamic reference made my day. That show needs to come back.
