Indeed, didn't work for me either (or I gave up, maybe).

You can do this [last] with Emacs-w3m. I remember a discussion
where there was a page and you'd visit and it'd tell you the
footprint you made. What happened with Emacs-w3m an my setting
was ironically that it made such a small footprint, it was
highly unusual :) But I'm not a tin-hat enough to think
anything bad can really happen to anyone because of that.
Maybe in China or Belarus? Even so, why gamble ...

Now tomas you seem to think your sentiments are rare but they
are not.

The only thing to add is a note on JavaScript which, _in
general_, and as you know, isn't "a shabby-construction
web-programming language with a C++ syntax".

"Hello, everyone, this is 2021 calling. Please update your
calendars, it is no longer the 1990s", as it was put.
