Mobile browser should ALWAYS ask permission before opening external apps

iOS user here. Am sick of the browser opening the YouTube app from private mode. I am using private mode for specific YouTube videos for a reason, and I don’t want the YouTube app to log certain videos in my history. I would at least appreciate it if the browser asked for permission every time before opening the app.

There are instances where switching to an external app is useful (i.e. switching to a banking app for an online money transfer). However, the mobile browser should at least be asking for permission every time it wants to open an external app.
