The mobile web in 2018.
@blocknonip mobile sites were a mistake
@bhtooefr is your personal website just a plain html document? I can get behind that, that's pretty nifty.
@tastytentacles @blocknonip How. How to you critize the very base concept of being able to check the web on your phone without installing a much more invasive app when the real problem here is:
Bad practice for trying to force people to pay. Bad solution for cookie warning.
It's not a bad idea. It's bad website design
@freyja_wildes mostly I was joking, because the vast majority of mobile sites are garbage and small touch screens are a garbage interface for exploring web pages.
Your right that it's bad design but good design is also not incentivised so we don't really get anything better.
@tastytentacles Sorry... I have an issue understanding jokes... I'm too serious.
I see your point thought. Thanks
@freyja_wildes it's fine, jokes are mostly context and there wasn't really any for you to work from.
@tastytentacles Thanks for your understanding. I feel a bit silly though.
@freyja_wildes nah you are good, we all make mistakes.
@maiyannah @blocknonip It reminds me of those pics of IE crammed with toolbars, like this one: http://www.edugeek.net/forums/jokes-interweb-things/68124-internet-explorer-toolbar-overload.html#post607835
The cramming has now moved into the actual pages.
I'm relying on RSS more and more now.
Someone make an Indiana Jones GIF avoiding booby traps, but all the traps are mobile ads instead.
@blocknonip … looks so much better when you press the "Readability" button
My experience with web and mobile development is that most of the people making the decisions don’t actually use their own products.
@blocknonip but look at how much content you can see!
@blocknonip Take a look at the actual HTML spit out by the Economist's site, if you really want to feel disgusted
The only usable web is command line
If you really have to visit those, use a browser that makes the sites feel less at home… e.g. #Privacy #Browser
Helps you focus on where you are on the page, rather than having to scan all over to find where you last left off, when you look away.
If you want to learn electronic music production with open-source software and Linux, you can now watch the entire process behind my d'n'b track "Bodacious" on YouTube.
It has won me a MOD Duo, so you know it's good ;)
