The more I use the web, the more I appreciate my console-based web feed reader and email client.

@hund Since I started blocking javascript by defallt the web got so much better, not good by any means but so much better than it was before :)

@sotolf @hund People seem to have forgotten the principle of progressive enhancement. Build your website so simple that it works with a console based browser. Then ask yourself where you need to add Javascript in order to functionally enhance your website. But at the same time remember that your website should not break or display a white page if someone has blocked your sparsely added Javascript.

Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk. :)
