if you don't know how to install a browser, you'll not understand a word on the site anyway. is the most elitist thing I've read on dev.to so far.

ehm, given that most of the content of this website is technical and 99% related to web development, I'm pretty confident that if you code for a browser you should know what a browser is. That's not elitist, is common sense.

A quick check on the definition of elitist

  1. practice of or belief in rule by an elite. (doesn't apply)
  2. consciousness of or pride in belonging to a select or favored group. (doesn't apply either)

"but that is for a very specific niche of users, I wouldn't blame if dev.to doesn't support IE, if you don't know how to install a browser, you'll not understand a word on the site anyway."

Is fair that a woodworking site assume that their visitors know what wood is, getting offended by that obvious assumption is ridiculous.

I must say your comment is is the most selfrighteous thing I've read on dev.to so far.
