You probably build websites and think your shit is special. You think your 13 megabyte parallax-ative home page is going to get you some fucking Awwward banner you can glue to the top corner of your site. You think your 40-pound jQuery file and 83 polyfills give IE7 a boner because it finally has box-shadow. Wrong, motherfucker. Let me describe your perfect-ass website:
- Shit’s lightweight and loads fast
- Fits on all your shitty screens
- Looks the same in all your shitty browsers
- The motherfucker’s accessible to every asshole that visits your site
- Shit’s legible and gets your fucking point across (if you had one instead of just 5mb pics of hipsters drinking coffee)
An oldie apparently, but one I hadn’t seen before. Sorry if you don’t care for the swearing, but I think the point made is very true indeed:
I’m not actually saying your shitty site should look like this. What I’m saying is that all the problems we have with websites are ones we create ourselves. Websites aren’t broken by default, they are functional, high-performing, and accessible. You break them. You son-of-a-bitch.
