Browsers are neat! The inspector is a great tool.
Browsers have problems of their own, but those problems are solvable, and divorced from the OS and bundled software issues I was specifically talking about here.
We also might be talking about different age groups. I work with my nephew, and I do Code.Org\\hour of code with 2nd and 3rd graders.
To them, the inspector is pretty scary, but Code Combat or Pico-8 can go a long way.
