nobody likes progress
I was ok, with the old Freshmeat too, but things need to change, I think the new look is nice and a change every now and then is good. This change should be welcomed because it provides new scenery, a new atmosphere and the oportunity to improve on an already great site.
Keep up the good work
Author makes very silly comments
At the time of this writing there is only one browser that consistantly correctly displays pages, supports modern browser technologies properly (css, javascrpt, etc) and runs without continual crashing.
Which browser is it?
You already know don't you? It's Internet Explorer. While I'm no fan of $MS they make the only viable browser on the market. The author suggest that to compete with them we start harrasing webmasters until they dumb down their sites to the point of insanity. I guess since we can't build a better browser that support the users needs we should just try to change the users needs. I've never heard of a dumber strategy in all my life.
Quite simply, if we build it they will come. It's that simple, it's just that no one is doing it. Build a browser that is every thing that IE is in the commercial world (and better if possible and no I don't mean that piece o'crap Mozilla), but build it open source and then watch the sparks fly as the browser wars start up again. But this time try to keep up.
