So I accidentally visited an Instagram page. The following interaction with the website really should not surprise me.
Website: "Accept cookies from Instagram on this browser?"
Options: "Accept" or "Learn More"
We choose "Learn More"
"Continue to Instagram by accepting cookies?"
Options: "Accept" or "Back"
Choosing "Back" will bring us back to the first "question" (with giant airquotes)
@yarmo The same as Google. In theory is possible to disable them but they make you click thousands of links.
@yarmo has this the other day. Opened in Firefox focus instead, and then it blocked the content without a login. Screw these guys, and Pinterest too
@yarmo This stuff is a form of malicious compliance. They follow the cookie low in the most obnoxious way in order to push blame on the legal system.
@yarmo at least they are kind, you can escape by closing the tab :p some websites were preventing you from doing this, remember....
@yarmo I surf without js, so no question for me :D now the site doesn't work at all either, but I've never been on instagram, so it doesn't bother me that much :)
