Rants, Web

Dear Internets,

It’s been 20 years, there is a long-established consortium that develops standards for viewing data on the web and the method of describing presentation semantics of web documents is now 15 years old. Javascript is similarly 17 years old now.

So then, why, for-the-love-of-fucking-christ, do I find:

  • Tables for formatting
  • Use of deprecated tags (like background on said tables
  • Flash.. showing nothing but the logo
  • Using Javascript onload.. inside opening tags and preloading images

This all would be forgiven if the year read 1996. But then you have PNGs that use the alpha channel and Google Analytics.

You are a troll….. aren’t you?

Dear Internets..
