@vbuaraujo oh interesting. thanks for the correction. I only found it cause they give you the choice to either accept their new policies or assess the text only version.
@wakest Hmm, that's interesting. Thanks for the clarification.
@wakest Ah sorry. I should have checked.
@wakest THE INTERNET IS BECOMING USABLE AGAIN
Thank you! That is so cool!
@wakest (... I'm 95+% sure they've had that for a while?)
@wakest Hm. Internet Archive says it goes back to last December. https://web.archive.org/web/20171214083154/https://text.npr.org/. So I guess so actually?

@wakest We have reached minimum Internet. 😊
@wakest This is something all websites *should* be able to do. In fact, should be tested like this on purpose.

this has existed forever hehe
I don't think that one is due to gdpr. At least for me, there's still things trying to track me.
