@markosaric Well deserved, I'd say. It's a great article pointing out in well put words why APM is not a solution but another layer of problems on the top ๐Ÿ’

@markosaric haha and of course I had a typo. AMP not APM ๐Ÿ˜…

@Marko Saric It's awesome, but you forgot to mention useless completely uncalled for web frameworks, most people really don't need those

@blue @markosaric I think that's a separate issue, but which frameworks do you think are unnecessary?

@markosaric
I would not mind if Reader Mode in FireFox was the default view mode for all news sites. This is a killer feature for me.

@markosaric
I went to Google I/O AMP workshop once with my colleague and we made AMP version of our mobile site - it was not faster than the original. Organisers were not very happy with our presentation at the end of the workshop ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

@markosaric Just read this. Is it really that hard to just build a website? Why do we keep making this harder for ourselves?

@mgraybosch part of the story google tells is that you'll get higher rankings and more traffic with amp

@markosaric I've heard that story. It sounds a lot like Google using their dominance in search to push adoption of tech nobody really wants or needs, but I'm not an antitrust lawyer so what do I know?
