(Fully?) armored with UBlock, Tampermonkey, IncognitoFilter, and -recently- ScriptSafe I am able to roll back web 'advancements' a full 10 years or more.  Until an android browser gets some of these tools, I'll be sticking with desktops.

This bandwidth thing in the article fits the The Pythagorean Garage Theorem which states, no matter how big a garage you build you will always fill it up with junk.

Hey watch what you're calling junk there. Up until yesterday I had 4 motorcycles and 2 boats with no room for cars. (meh) Sold the jetboat.
