tomayac @pimterry @ietf There’s definitely a divide between front-end Twitter (grifters) that tend to be quite loud and other folks who care about the Web and the Internet (≠ shocking) more holistically. I had success with a tongue in cheek title about HTTP headers a while ago: blog.tomayac.com/2019/03/22/two….

@MattWilcox There are certainly arguments either way. My personal preference is to not make buttons etc. selectable. Apps definitely and acknowledgedly have a tendency to overdo it.

via Twitter Web App in reply to MattWilcox

@schofeld @johnallsopp @AaronGustafson Yeah, that’s definitely app developers over-doing it. See what I wrote in web.dev/app-like-pwas/… (expand the “How to do this on the web” item).

tomayac @AaronGustafson Accidentally selectable text like on a button is my biggest pet peeve. I’ve written up a lot of tips for a more app-like feel in an article: web.dev/app-like-pwas/.

scottohara Remember that time I published a blog post about the long and fraught journey of the <menu> element, and its present semantic reality?

It was today. Now, even. You are remembering “right now”:

@hdv That’s exactly why you want to randomize these very class names so that upon each rebuild of your site all extensions that mess with it break. 🙄
