You are simply wrong - the feature is the problem.

If I browse the internet randomly I regularly bump into sites abusing various things you would consider "advancements", things like notifications and picture-in-picture.

The reason they are able to abuse these features? Because the features have been designed wrong.

Yes, we should have picture-in-picture, but only if I want it, not when the website developer wants it. We should have notifications, but only when I expressly ask for it, not so every website out there can spam you with "bs-news.com would want to send you notifications? Allow / Deny" dialogs.

Your non-solutions are not amusing.
