@alcinnz @alvarezp I think a perfectly reasonable way of talking about the issue is simply as arbitrary code execution. The whole point of something like blocking a <bitcoinminer> tag or something would be that the tag is _not_ arbitrary code, but rather refers to a specific program with specific behavior. It's the restriction of the language to specific behaviors that makes things like HTML and CSS less problematic.

Reminder: if you don't use JavaScript, you don't get crashes. And don't need loading screens.

I'm liking this post: dev.to/winduptoy/a-javascript-

A web dev asked me how I did some dynamic loading stuff on this web thing I’ve been building and asked me what JS library I was using. When I told him it’s just HTML, he said he didn’t realize that was possible.

He didn’t know server side rendered HTML was a thing

Something I kinda missed the other day: #Slackware has updated #OpenSSL on Feb. 26th.


The same day the OpenSSL advisory was published:


I like that kind of reactivity. This is why I support Patrick Volkerding: paypal.me/volkerdi

@jeff @sir @alcinnz @rushsteve1 what is a mistake is treating the web like a native application. The web isn't. We should stop doing shit like that!

We need Akira on Linux. Not only because it's great concept, but because it'll also attract designer to the platform.


A framework's so-called "developer experience" is absolutely irrelevant if it breaks user experience. Put in another way: comparing developer experience between two frameworks is only valid if they offer the same level of user experience. Put in an analogy: first sort criteria is user experience, second sort criteria is developer experience. Thinking the other way around is unacceptable.

Is this basically an <a target="_blank"> but with tweaks? What the fuck?

A guy asks his Web programmer friend to write a recommendation letter for him. The next day, the Web programmer hands out his friend a blank piece of paper. --What is this? --This is the recommendation letter you asked for. --Why doesn't it say anything? --It does, but to read it you need to enable Javascript. :-)

Like simple HTML pages? Javascript is a virus of biblical proportions? Want to remember browsing on the early web?


If the internet routers which ISPs supply came with a built in XMPP server enabled by default that would go a long way towards decentralizing communications. Modern routers are easily capable of running an XMPP server.

If it requires JavaScript to be visible; it's not on the Web. It's only "JavaScript-executing Web browser" able.

This also means: if you want #FreeSoftware that works in a specific way and you don't want to code it yourself (maybe learning what you ignore in the process) there is ONE way to act: pay a team of developers to develop it according to your specification.

Even this, is totally fine and welcome, EVEN if they fork the original software.

But people are not entitled to free work from volunteers and hackers.
