The Web Looks Like Shit

Auto-play videos lurking in unopened tabs. Pop-ups that won’t go away. Photos that won’t load. Text that’s invaded by ads. It’s hard to complain about the internet without feeling like a mom struggling to post on Facebook, but going online has started to feel like an assault on the senses. The internet so often feels like that joke from Annie Hall in which two old women complain about dinner: “This article is terrible.” “I know — and so hard to read!”

The trend of late to "optimize" websites for mobile devices didn't help much, either. In fact, websites in 2017 are being designed for mobile devices first and foremost.

And who the fuck thought it would be a good idea for mobile Facebook to start playing videos with sound on the moment they come into view?
