While a lot of people decided to set a header to opt-out from FLOC tracking for their users, I decided to embrace it and let people make up their own mind.

For those interested in the banner, here are the implementation details:

git.shivering-isles.com/shiver

It's kept simple and efficient. It'll only show up, when your browser implements the API. Enjoy!

I do think for most of you, it's better to read the reviews of The Social Dilemma than to actually watch it. Those reviews do not pull their punches like the film does.

There's a few other such reviews, but I don't have the links on me...

@cypnk someone who speaks German, please tell me it's just a joke and it doesn't actually make sense.
