Re: Unneeded css

Interesting contrast. We just had the warmest December night recorded in Sydney. Previous record was set in 1868!

Re: CSS Inheritance

How much of the content were you able to edit using regular expressions?

In the past I've found that an extremely productive way to do these things.

Re: Getting Ready for HTTP/2

As HTTP2 gets more real, there's another way to check for it. Browser independent. Run Wireshark.

Re: Finding it harder to read websites?

Thanks. There's more similar wrongness. On that backchannel page for example the "disappearing right scroll bar" is defective. (It leads to inadvertent page changing (I got two of them) and "unwanted big scroll jumps".) Not to mention those "one page web sites" that are losing users. (By fitting it ...

Re: HTTP/2 is too slow. Now we have QUIC.

Thanks for that.

That syn/ack triple handshake is clearly a problem.

Notes:
1. Wireshark (naturally) can handle QUIC packets.
2. The site has an RSS feed (implemented primitively) so you don't even need to sign up for email if you use feeds.

Re: Transitioning Customers site.

I've seen sites slow down when moved to WP. One option is to form a subdomain and put that only on WP if that's what you want. If you do that I agree with Albert that WP fora are the places to ask. I recommend building your own styling if it's important, rather than trying to shoehorn something else...

Re: What is Container based hosting?

The answer that makes sense to you will depend on your background. I have no idea about Kyup and where you can get it. Hope the following helps. Containers are a bit like VM's (Virtual Machines) but lighter weight. The architecture differs from VM's (obviously). If you explore how Docker works that ...

I haven't examined their rating method in detail, but am pleased to see that they publish code to run your own. (It's Python 3.)

Re: Subresource Integrity and the integrity attribute

Great to see that this is live.

A simple and effective approach.

Best when there are separate sources for markup and resources.

I know this is intended for those actually using AMP.

In this initiative I see evidence of that: The CDN a...

Re: The Website Obesity Crisis

You're right about the odd ways pages are often made. My experience when I view source, is like yours. I see huge amounts of cruft, including more third party code to spy on users than page content. Often the " stasi code " is included rather than inline. With newspapers and "main stream media" it's...

Re: Which web browser is best?

The browser scene also got a bit more interesting. Vivaldi went to RTM. I've seen good reports but not tested it myself. (I tested some early betas and got really annoyed that they seemed not to be doing anything useful and that I had to edit the registry to uninstall. I think they're well past that...

Re: HTTPS

I have safe browsers where I control the protocols available, through Schannel. If a web site fails on a safe browser it goes to a less safe browser, namely one of those with a paternalistic, you can't control it, strategy. It's horrifying how many banks and the like only implement less desirable se...
