But I'm the same way about all this new desktop garbage. I click on minimize I want it gone NOW, not after some stupid animation runs. I drag a window I want to see what the window is going to look like while dragging, NOT have it distorted by some stupid animation. I click on a menu, I want to see what's in the blasted menu NOW, not after some stupid animation plays... (and preferably the whole menu, not what I just so happen to have used recently -- you know, what a MENU is for?) conversely I enter a search I'd like to finish typing BEFORE it starts looking and wasting my bandwidth and siezing the focus so I can't even continue typing without the browser going off to never never land; preferably not with some stupid dog recycled from Microsoft Bob asking if it can help me like Clippy's daft cousin.
I'm not rocking a 22mbps connection on a i7 870 with a GTX 560ti to have things run slower and in a less useful manner than they did on a AMD 568/133 running Windows 3.1 on dialup in 1995!
For the handful of people I still service (retired now), I explain that they are throwing accessibility out the window, wasting bandwidth and slowing the page to the point it's going to double, triple or even quadruple the bounce rate, and explain that -- much as I tell the photoshop jockeys -- people visit websites for the CONTENT, not the stupid slow broken scripted garbage you put on top of it, the 'gee ain't it neat' graphics you put on top of it, or any of the other "gee ain't it neat" nonsense that is increasingly making the Internet less useful to users than it was a decade ago.
Because "hey neat" lasts five seconds, "damn annoying, I'll go somewhere else" lasts a lifetime; and when it comes to scripting, the 2 million plus noscript plugin for FF users, couple hundred thousand users of workalikes in Chrome, and millions of Opera users (84 million doesn't sound quite as dismiss-able as 3%, does it?) who use per site script blocking know exactly what I'm talking about!
Look at webmail -- ALL of them; so knee deep in scripted asshattery it's sending users scrambling back to mail clients. I'm actually enjoying M2 and thunderbird is alive and well -- funny since just four to five years ago everyone was predicting the demise of mail clients.
Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail -- or server installable like roundcube -- they all make squirrelmail look useful by comparison since at least it doesn't break middle clicking on messages to open them in new windows/tabs or forward/back navigation! That they all waste several megabytes on delivering plaintext then have the cojones to sell the suits on it as saving bandwidth is mind-numbingly unbelievable... .and making Squirrelmail look good is like calling a 1984 Yugo GV built for the American market a quality automobile.
