iOS 11 Strips AMP Cruft from URLs Via the Sharesheet

Good news everybody!

Yeah, this is going to be awesome. May the web enjoy healthy browsing again.

While I may be in "AMP is bullshit" camp, I can still respect the solution it is trying to solve. I totally agree with others that it is the web developer's responsibility to load pages fast. As John Gruber points out, it is in the interest of publishers to use AMP as Google features AMP-ready cards in search queries.

Which... is dumb. But oh well. However, when a user shares a webpage from the Safari sharesheet it will save me the headache of thinking about AMP.
