@ivesen this usually happens only on large corporate websites, so most of the web is fine.

@polychrome Remember that period from like 2007 to 2014 where this always happened with mobile websites?

@gcupc yes, and now we have imgur to thank for continuing a modicum of the tradition by making their website completely useless on mobile :blobcatinnocent:

@polychrome @gcupc consider it an encouragement to write your own applications that view imgur?

@jasper @gcupc hmm.. greasemonkey is available on Firefox for Android... :blobthinking:

@polychrome I hate things like that with a passion.
Also I forgot to count the times US American Newsites were like "Oh, you don't live here? You ain't viewing this!" because of the DSGVO (I assume).
