FWIW, there is a workaround for this which seems to work so far. The upcoming
qutebrowser v1.9.0 release will contain it, but in the meantime you can do the

I was wrong there. I contacted them to see what'd happen.
One of them told me to "try out" his solution and sent me to a phishing page,
trying to get me to log in with my Google Account there.
The other asked me for $2000 for his solution.
Unsurprisingly, I declined both offers. So much about Google making things more
