Without the end user having complete default control over the end user interface in amanner that isnt likely to be opted away- a substantial portion of the promise of MaidSafe may never deliver. Its power will be coopted or sponsored away. I think that holds in the longer term even with all that MaidSafe brings.
There will be attempts to say its a browser issue and we cant stop the from using other browsers so what is the point. Or it’s not possible or practicle. Or its not even desireable. Or its app developer perogative, dont like their ways then dont use their stuff.
None of that holds water.
No modal anything
No navigation or scroll manipulation
No volume manipulation.
No self starting video.
These things disempower the user, debase the platform, ruin trust and confidence and worst of all enable sponsorship and the ad commons model that pisses away our rights and quality of life with re-enclosure. Losing control of the interface or allowing it to be bargained away guarantees a captive experience where content is reduced to infomercial and antisocial pandering.
Video embedded ads can be defeated too and must be even if by quick advance and search delisting.
