@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.

What's funny is that if everyone in the adtech industry switched to textlink ads from now on people would be so curious by cryptic oneliners they'll start clicking on the links again 🤑

@wakest The NPR text-only site is great for accessibility. On a Chromebook with Select-to-speak enabled it is as simple as clicking on a story, hit Search + A and Search + S. Chromebook speaks the story. Nice! text.npr.org

I think it's time we changed the default browser CSS a bit. Maybe to something like this[0], but with more contrast.

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

@wakest they have had that for a while now. I think CNN does as well, but no one would want/need to go there :)
