re: Should browsers still allow users to disable JavaScript? VIEW POST

This is exactly the thing that was referenced when I had this convo IRL.

Chrome JS disabling on 2G is exactly the antithesis to this discussion.

I think we need to realize the difference between things that should be more like documents and more like rich applications.

DEV is rich, but it's like documents. If you come from Google to a post, you're here for the document. If you come to comment, message, react, interact in other ways, you're here for the application. Both are relevant use cases. The further you get into interactions, the more likely it will be that something might work, but the basic experience is document-driven.

Not that we do everything right but that's how I think about it.


Agree Ben.

Hopefully no one will introduce a standard HTTP header to tell the browser if the page is just a document or an app :D
