using NoScript has really opened my eyes to how fucking garbage the modern web is.
something that should just be a static site with information about a UI framework? page is entirely blank unless i allow the domain in noscript.
a static site for hosting information about your bootstrap alternative? not okay.
@maffsie At least mastodon also has the excuse of having to get information in real time.
I don't like the current trend either, honestly.
@maxine yeah, for real.
@maffsie That's also how things should work.
It's how I try to do things too.
Modern web sites are all gravy, no potatoes.
@maffsie now go visit cbc.ca

@lyliawisteria seems to load fairly well
@maffsie you have to use the site a bit.. try playing a video. but i bet it loaded about five times before settling down and letting you read the damn thing.
@maffsie it's actually especially bad because it does make websites heavier and more of a pain to load in low-bandwidth zones (and that's not even talking about advertisement). having done webdev I do absolutely adore the designs and look you can get from using JS to make the website animated and all, but seriously, with html 5 and css 3 having been a thing for a long time, and frameworks taking advantage of it to make things pretty, I don't understand why we still need full js envs.
@furkachi a lot of the lovely stuff is easy to do without JS, which is the worst part.
I miss the time when CSS Zen Garden was an important part of honing your webdev skills
@maffsie Very much so. things like bootstrap are great because they allow ease of use of making things look decent easily, but it would seem like CSS in itself has become a bane that no one wants to work with.
Though it is painful, it can be in fact very satisfying and very lightweight
I agree with you on that point.
I've been using NS for several years now, and I can testify that if you use it for long enough, it will permanently alter how you see the world, universe, political beliefs, etc.
@maffsie I much prefer uMatrix to NoScript as it allows more fine grained control.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
