The antitrust investigation is already paying off: Google will no longer be prioritizing AMP pages https://themarkup.org/google-the-giant/2020/11/19/as-antitrust-pressure-mounts-google-to-pull-back-benefit-to-news-sites-that-adopted-its-preferred-mobile-technology
When #Google says, "#greatPageExperience" that seems to be code for #Cloudflare. Honestly this is nothing. They can still demote content and plausibly deny it has anything to do with anything its just that when they tested to page from every location on earth only the Cloudflare and Google services loaded instantly.
The article mentions a blog post from Google but doesn't link to it.
@volt4ire I love the subheading "Will the AMP format die as a result?"
On the one hand, Betteridge's law of headlines suggests no.
On the other hand, it would be foolish to bet on any Google product surviving, or to build anything relying on Google products. I have an unopened Google Daydream headset, Daydream was killed before I could open the box. https://killedbygoogle.com/
I certainly refuse to support AMP in any way, for practical as well as ethical reasons.
Wasn't this what they've been saying all the time? They were also insisting that AMP wasn't dependent on Google, but have you heard of an AMP site that wasn't hosted by them?
@volt4ire Which is more or less fine, because only the big news sites could figure out how to do it.
