And Now Google Doesn't Think Users Should Ever Set Headers.
Progress is progress.

Progress in a society comes when they collectively pursue in common something
that would improve their lives and conditions.  If the few and powerful coerce or
blackmail a society to move a certain direction because that advances the interests
of the few I wouldn't dare call this progress.  Rarely in history did such moves lasted
and stabilized, as for every action there is a reaction.  Just give it some time and
the vast majority of the world will be really happy to see google/fb/ms collapse
and vanish.  That may be progress, being without the pests.

Would you call android and win10 progress?  I hope not.  Vehicles were progress
over horses and carriages in some respects, people walking and one in
ten thousands being driven in a Rolls Royce where the passengers were covered
and the driver was outside was not progress.  Model A was progress at
a cost.

Progress is not made by following rulers and those in power, it comes
from the dialectic of resisting and reacting to power and oligarchy.
