This is a classic and yet it never stops to frustrate me when I land on this screen after a Google search.

There’s multiple things in this screen that websites shouldn’t be doing:

  • It’s hosted on AMP which makes it hard to get the original URL to share (Friends don’t let friends use AMP URLs or URLs with SEO utm garbage attached)
  • Two links to promote the official Reddit app
  • The default behavior of opening the website through a browser—which is what I’m doing right now—has to be confirmed by using the “Continue” button. Why this button is labeled with a Chrome icon while I’m on Safari is unclear. It makes it look like it’s going to open Chrome (Which I haven’t installed) but all it does is removing the modal.
