"Google no longer providing original URL in AMP for image search results"

Time to share this one again before it's too late:

How to fight back against Google AMP markosaric.com/google-amp/

@markosaric I don't know why AMP exists. It delivers a truly awful user experience. I have never opened an AMPed website that actually worked. It is not uncommon for *scroll* to be broken.


@mwt it exists because it's easier for google to control more of the web with it :) but hopefully it will turn to be a failure as most signs point in that direction

@markosaric It's remarkable because there were other options. For example, if they built a transparent CDN that optimized images and applied brotli, they could control the web without breaking it. Most users would even love it.
