- by Pierre, a month agoRated 5 out of 5I really like the idea of contributing to an ad-free web while supporting content-creators!
The extension is great; it would be even greater if it showed the mount of money given, (or the time spent) per web-monetized website.
- by Seth, 2 months agoRated 5 out of 5A great way to support services and creators based on how you use it, some even remove ads or provide bonuses if you're supporting them via Web Monetization.
The Web Monetization API and this extension acts as the gateway toward an ad-free internet.
I've seen a review that mentions this asks for very wide permissions, and it's partially true but this isn't the fault of Coil. Coil needs to access the page to get the Interledger Pointer, Firefox does not have a granular enough permission system to only request access to the head of the document, or to not request access input fields or password fields. These concerns should be passed to Mozilla, not Coil.
- by Jeremiah Lee, a year agoRated 5 out of 5The ad-free-Web begins with Coil and the Web Monetization API standard. When millions of people start buying 1 latte a month to split across the sites they get value from, the Web is going to be a better place for everyone.
