Run the original WorldWideWeb in a browser tab! My website is quite usable in it. https://worldwideweb.cern.ch/browser/ (sorry put the wrong link in the last one)
@iMartyn @nolan I agree, but it’s already possible to do this both on the web and natively. You see it all over in mobile applications. Terrible designers and developers already waste ridiculous amounts of code on replacing native elements for superficial reasons, and I’ve spent my career yelling at them for it. However, there are valid reasons to allow extending native elements, and throwing that out because someone might replace a checkbox with a chicken is stupid, frankly.
@iMartyn @nolan I agree. However, there are valid reasons to want to extend built-in elements. Most common is <button>, especially for creating things like toolbars. With a wrapper web component class one can recreate a checkbox in shadow dom and hiding the real one visually all while retaining built-in accessibility features by passing events to the real one. We can do it already, so might as well just make it more efficient.
Cuba looks like the set of a Wes Anderson movie in these dream-like photos
@nolan Yeah, hopefully we can just manipulate its shadow dom in the future, but WebKit’s not too keen on that so yay!
@cassidyjames Weird it linked to your map instead oh well.
I find it hilarious Opera's redesigning the browser to look like Vivaldi.
I just learned on the radio that the city of Cologne is taking 360° photos of the city for administrative purposes (such as measuring the maximum passage height of streets).
I bet that most big cities do the same.
Wouldn't it make sense for @openstreetmap to ask them to make those photos available under a compatible license so they can be used in OSM?

`prefers-color-scheme: dark` is so cool. I gotta start using that.
@nolan Web components were introduced nearly two years before React came around. They just sort of took on the very early work on that and made it generate 1232132445123125 more divs.
New blog post: "Building a modern carousel with CSS scroll snap, smooth scrolling, and pinch-zoom" https://nolanlawson.com/2019/02/10/building-a-modern-carousel-with-css-scroll-snap-smooth-scrolling-and-pinch-zoom/
In which I extol the virtues of not bothering with third-party carousel libraries, and just building it yourself! The web of 2019 is quite capable. 😊
