<try to inspect in browser console
<the url is a fucking blob link now
<they harass you to make an account
<you need to click the big blue download button for retards

this is like the 7th website I use that has become victim to the javashit enshittification process. I would say kill all web developers but I know it's really porky responsible for this, trying to desperately grasp onto private property by arbitrarily putting digital "commodities" that have almost 0 Socially Necessary Labor Time required to create behind paywalls and javashit. But web devs could simply refuse to implement these shitty features, but they have petit booj brain and are too handsomely paid to form a union, let alone refuse to implement porky's designs.

What does this have to do with JavaScript?

i don't know because I'm retarded. all i know is that javashit apps love to block previously-accessible files, especially images and videos, behind blob urls and other shit, making them inaccessible to the end user. It's porky shit and I don't like it. I'M NOT EDUCATED ENOUGH OK?!?!?!?!? I'LL JUST PUT IN 10K MORE HOURS TO UNDERSTAND WHY I'M MAD

you can't screenshot it with the transparent checkered background, then it won't be a transparency anymore. the whole point was a PNG transparency

OP I've also used that site and noticed that the other day. they fixed it though, I came back today and I could right click copy image again. So whatever they did they reversed it.

these are attempts to lock down what is supposed to be an open web.
javascript was built by a corp to add complexity to web pages and for years it was a broken mess until corps flooded the standards bodies with their own people to align with their goal of making more complex and locked down "webapps" instead of just pages.
now most of the internet doesn't even work if you don't allow every page to download 1MB of minified js junk that needs some "v8" intepreter shit in your browser to execute.
it's basically java applets, but more broken and insecure and the jvm is bundled with your browser.

then just erase the background in GIMP with transparency on and then save as png.

Shouldn't need custom stylesheets, f*refox or archive.is to begin with

OP is complaining that something that used to be fast is now slow, not that it's impossible.

>Shouldn't need custom stylesheets
Why would you let the same web developers who fill the site with useless javashit decide how the website looks?
>>21798
I'm not. "You" is also a plural pronoun.

>OP is complaining
I know. But I am a bad listener, in toxic male fashion I always offer a solution rather than empathise and nod. r/twoxchromosomes might be a better fit?

 No.21803

OP, this will be far worse when they mass implement web assembly and the front end code becomes an opaque binary rather than code you can even look through to begin with

/pol/ might be a better fit for you. Something that used to take me 5 seconds now takes me 20 minutes because I have to go back to doing it manually. Your "solution" was plainly obvious to me before you offered it. And there was nothing "male" about it. I was doing it for years before remove.bg showed up. They went back to not allowing me to copy the image btw.
>>21803
grrrrrr
