Permissions Solved

If everyone just reads Matt’s article and implements friendly patterns for asking for permission then everything is solved, right? If only.

It doesn’t matter how good an article on UX is or how many people read it, it can’t reach everyone. So we still end up with permissions popping up at page load. You might think that this is just bad for the site that is providing the poor experience, but check those tweets at the start of this post. They don’t care any more, they never want notifications. They want to be able to turn them all off for good. And they can, that’s what the How-To Geek article explains. Firefox is soon releasing a global disable option, too, and if you read the responses you’ll see that this is being welcomed.
