Why the fsck do people make websites like this:

Scrollbars removed, every interaction (badly) mediated by JavaScript - to a point where links to sub-headings do not work.

A pure HTML site with a tiny bit of CSS would have been much more readable, and much more usable.


@rysiek New web devs that think Javascript is the savior of the web and not realizing that people did more with less when they were still in diapers.

@claudiom @rysiek Is there a war being waged on scroll bars? First the browsers made them tiny and almost unusable and now I guess we're just deleting them altogether?

@swaggboi @claudiom @rysiek i think InfinityScroll made scrollbars vastly unusable (because js figured out when to fetch new content and constantly appending it to the bottom)

<sarcasm>eventually it'll all get much better when everything is finally webasm</sarcasm>

@ruffni @swaggboi @claudiom infinityscroll belongs in a very special circle of hell, along with position:fixed auto-play videos.

Kill it with fire. Nuke it from the orbit. Weed it out and salt the ground.


@ruffni @swaggboi @claudiom and my personal favourite, an infinityscroll website with a footer that contains some important info or functionality (say, language toggle).

To all the devs that have ever implemented it (and there's plenty): what is wrong with you?
