Browsers to make those less nagging when.

@lanodan Of course it's not made by browsers, but by websites (usually the first time I visit them). I don't know what exactly to call them. May be browser message pop-up?

@duy The request is made by websites but the browser could for example just simply display a notification icon instead of directly a dialog.

@duy

1. go to website
2. click Firefox reader mode button
3. read content

@duy

4. (sometimes) refresh page in reader mode if cookie consent banner was initially misidentified as content

@guenther Thank you :ablobcatwink: In fact, I'm using uBlock Origin. Anytime when a web page asked me to turn off ad-blocker, I'll leave and never come back.

I tried Firefox Reader before, it was a good way, too!

@duy Fyi, there's an add-on to get through pay walls.

@mu When I met a pay wall, I'll leave and never come back

@huy_ngo Tôi xài uBlock Origin nên cũng bớt nhiều. Còn mấy trang web Việt Nam thì ghét nhất là mấy cái "chat bot thông minh" ở góc phải bên dưới trang web. Vừa khiến trang web load chậm hơn mà lại gây phiền toái, trong khi chỉ là mấy câu truy vấn Nếu/Thì mớm sẵn.

@duy Mà thế nào toàn mấy trang VN mới hay có ad uBO không chặn

@huy_ngo uBlock chặn được nhưng thấy dạo gần đây nhiều trang VN thêm chat bot vô thấy phiền.
