Website UI idea: Display a warning when hovering an external link to a non-privacy respecting site.

"Operated by Google"
"Hosted on Cloudflare"
"Loads assets from Facebook"

@ayo Can that be done in a plugin I can put on my Mums computer so she sees that I'm not making it up?

I don't defend non-privacy respecting sites, but it's up to user how to deal with his online privacy. What you suggest sounds unsettlingly paternalistic and reeks of cancel culture.

Excellent point, though at the same time I feel like awareness is at an all-time low and even people who are somewhat aware of could appreciate an occasional reminder.
