Running with Code Like with scissors, only more dangerous


Dear Internet, please stop auto-playing videos

Posted by Rob Paveza

There is nothing more irritating than when going through a list of news articles that I want to read while having music on, and all of a sudden some video starts playing in one of the tabs that I opened. The video is almost always an ad, which I don't have particular objections to, but the automatic play when I wanted to read, not watch, because I'm listening to music.

Please STOP.
