The fact that browsers implement tracking prevention and a distraction-free reading mode tells a lot about the general state of the web.


@daniel_bohrer Well, it's also where that stuff belongs. I think the causality is reversed: the state of the web is because it took so long for them to start offering those features.

Our browsers haven't been working for us as users but have been driven by what developers of corporate web sites pushed for. Only now are browsers shifting back to a user focus.
