Google AMP is all about making web sites load faster when you’re on your phone, but it can be a little annoying in practice since it hijacks your browsers browser swipe actions and creates a custom Google-generated URL. Thankfully, you can get around it.

By default, when you click an AMP link (the news articles that appear in a carousal at the top of search results) to load an article, a right or left swipe suddenly takes you between different articles from different sources. This alone is annoying, but the little AMP header at the top of articles is also a distraction.

Whatever the reason you don’t like AMP, you can get around it to load the normal version of a page. Just tap the link icon in the AMP header, then tap the URL that pops up. That loads up the normal version of the page.
