Modern Web Idiocy

A list of things I find idiotic in the modern web.

As a web dev myself, I would also write code I consider idiotic, but not illegal/immoral, as long as it satisfies the project requirements.

Idoicy 1

Web "app" blog/news pages that just don't work with unsupported browsers. Too much dependency on javascript for a basic functionality.

Idoicy 2

Your unsupported client deserves an HTTP 400 on a simple GET request.

Idoicy 3

Let's use that big screen of your $900 phone... for undismissable ads and fixed navbar.
