Grumpy Website


it’s funny how some pages still reference user’s “computer”. People don’t use computers anymore. They use phones, and while technically they are computers, nobody in their right mind would call them that.

Same for “browser”. People don’t use browsers, they just open web pages. Browser is an invisible part of infrastructure that you don’t even think about (neither are you supposed to). When I click on a link in Twitter app on a phone and a web page pops up in a webview and says something about my browser running on my computer, I’m like “what the hell are you even talking about?” I used no browser. I was reading twitter on a phone.
