The "Developer Experience" Bait-and-Switch | Infrequently Noted
JavaScript is the web’s CO2. We need some of it, but too much puts the entire ecosystem at risk. Those who emit the most are furthest from suffering the consequences — until the ecosystem collapses. The web will not succeed in the markets and form-factors where computing is headed unless we get JS emissions under control.

The Web is Made of Edge Cases by Taylor Hunt on CodePen
People will use your site how they want, and according to their means. That is wonderful, and why the Web was built.

Left to our own devices. — Ethan Marcotte
To put a slightly more Darwinian spin on it: Your website’s only as strong as the weakest device you’ve tested it on.

Because for me, the real value of a device lab isn’t in testing, as such: a device lab is a design tool. It’s a great way to remind myself that some of the assumptions I might be making about the design need to be tested on something other than my laptop or my phone.

The Road To Resilient Web Design – Smashing Magazine
The primary design principle underlying the Web’s usefulness and growth is universality. The Web should be usable by people with disabilities. It must work with any form of information, be it a document or a point of data, and information of any quality — from a silly tweet to a scholarly paper. And it should be accessible from any kind of hardware that can connect to the Internet: stationary or mobile, small screen or large.

Refreshing The Verge: no platform like home - The Verge
Perhaps ironically, we’ve found that the best way to create that resiliency is by harking back to the web principle of progressive enhancement: each story created in Chorus begins as a platform-neutral collection of text, images, and video. That foundation ensures that we can publish that story as easily to our own platform as to, say, AMP or Apple News, and be confident that our audience will experience that story in a way that fits whichever platform they are using. On our own platform, we’re then free to enhance up, adding stylistic or experiential flairs that elevate the experience of the story. This practice — which I refer to unoriginally as progressively enhanced storytelling — also has the added benefit of helping us make our content more accessible to more kinds of users, especially those with disabilities. (It wouldn’t be inaccurate to consider speaking browsers one among the many platforms we must publish to.)

Miranj: Collateral Damage
Instead, I wish to draw your attention to web fonts. A lot (if not most) of the ad blocker apps also support blocking of web fonts. Some restrict themselves to blocking font hosting services such as Typekit and Google Fonts, while others block all web fonts, self-hosted or otherwise.

Modern Javascript and Server-Side Rendering
Whenever someone talks about the minified size of their libraries, I can’t help but roll my eyes. Bandwidth is not an issue. Anyone who has worried about shaving a few kilobytes off their libraries has wasted their time.

Every Browser is the New IE (to me) -
For me a moratorium isn’t a solution, I’d rather have a collective prioritization.
