Nicolas Magand on the internet

Comments about tech, media, nature, &c.

My name is Nicolas Magand and I live in Paris, France. I work as a social media and engagement editor at the Global Editors Network, a non-profit aimed at promoting innovation and sustainability in the news industry. Here I blog mostly about tech and media, but many other topics can face my enthusiasm.

iOS 9 content blocking will transform the mobile Web

Owen Williams, writing for The Next Web:

For years they’ve been piling on script after script with little afterthought for those on mobile — ad blocking might finally present them with a reason to care more and work to improve the performance of their sites and offer better alternatives to heavy, slow advertising.

This is great work from Williams, and the animated gifs alone are showing how web trackers, mostly from advertisers, have been bad for the users and for general performance, especially on phones. Can’t wait to try it.
