This is how that page (containing Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager)
looks in surf here:

While Web itself sucks[1], and surf is a compromise between a suckless shell
and an engine that sucks (Webkit) for a medium that sucks (HTML+CSS+JS), I find
that it is unfortunately not satisfactory yet from a privacy-respecting
standpoint, at least until it supports plugins such as uMatrix which block Ads
and various other privacy-intruding technologies. Simple filtering of URLs
just isn't enough.

Until such a moment, I'm using ungoogled-chromium[2] for everyday use.
