It seems I cannot access International Business times anymore.

And then blurs out the article. I can play the video, but that is about it.

Sample page: http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/top-10-best-games-goty-2016-overwatch-inside-hitman-doom-1597191

Videos on ibtimes.co.uk auto-play, which isn't the biggest deal. What annoys the hell out of me however is that the videos start themselves after a while even though I have paused them and after the video is done playing the next one in the playlist starts, and then the next one, and the next one, and the next one... This makes having ibtimes.co.uk articles open in one or a few tabs while doing something else or browsing multiple articles at once not an option. Yes the tabs can be muted, but the annoying videos playing in the background still drain CPU.

There's also a breaking news banner that turns up sometimes on the site. I'll report it here the next time I encounter it.
