Google has received criticism from Internet software developers over the Web Environment Integrity (WEI) API on Chrome, arguing that the proposed standard restricts user freedom and undermines the core principles of the open web. Employees from web browsers Vivaldi, Brave, and Firefox have taken a stance against Google’s WEI proposal, with some comparing it to digital rights management (DRM) for websites, reports BleepingComputer.
