What you can do:
* as a website admin/newspaper publisher: Do not use AMP!
* as a user: Use another browser (uhm @firefox) and use an "no AMP" add-on: addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/

@rugk I'm reliving a strong déjà vu from the days when Firefox was fighting IE :-)

@rugk Thank you so much for this post!Yes,Chrome absolutely sucks,I'll never use that piece of shit and I also will NEVER implement AMP into my website.But when I saw shitty AMP links here,I always had to copy the link into the address bar and remove the AMP part by hand because I couldn't find any addon which stops that shit for me.Now I finally have a easy solution!! 👍 👍 👍
