Webdev trends I hate with a passion: copy to clipboard buttons

I wasted a bunch of time yesterday on such a button in Owncloud. Why? These buttons access the clipboard via Javascript. This is an anti-feature with severe privacy and security implications. I have it disabled so the button does nothing.
Owncloud does not provide share links in plain text that I could copy, there is just the stupid button. So I had to dig into the source and find the URL as part of one of the social share buttons.

@murks If you actually mean @nextcloud you can say it to them directly if not carry on.

@cybercow @nextcloud Thanks but no, I double-checked and that server runs an Owncloud instance.
