Theoretically this would make Stacker News obsolete. Because any news site could just connect to the browser extension.

But the benefit of having the lightning as part of the site itself is that i can use it on mobile too.

Also, do we know if the metamask model has really worked yet? I think a lot of people don’t like the UX of needing an Extension for a website to be usable.

stacker.news is about discovery. even though we make payments easier from the consumer to the creator I think there will always be need for good discovery platforms.

The discovery aspect is unrelated to my comment, though.

A website like Reddit or Hacker News could hook into Alby web extension API and get the same thing. That's what I was saying.

Yep I use Stacker News a lot on mobile. I saved it to my home screen so it's like a native app.
