Dunno why everyone thinks that the web in the 90’s was a pure place we need to return to. It’s like a prelapsarian ideal that never existed, but that nerds can’t help but pine for (sorry, but I’m afraid that JavaScript *does* exist lol)


I know why, I’m just complaining about everyone being unreasonable.

I heard of this thing, called DHTML. It’s basically HTML+CSS but you also use JavaScript to modify the DOM and styling. Seems promising!

@ashfurrow uMatrix/noscript is a good enough medium between "turn off all javascript" and "allow everything". It's my version of "reasonable" for my web browser.

(I'll admit I basically don't know anything about javascript beyond how it's been abused to make me suffer.)
