Confessions of an Eccentric Web Developer
- I still occasionally use a <b> tag without thinking twice or feeling bad about it.
- As much of a Firefox fanboy as I am, I'm really starting to like Safari more and more.
- I can't stand when other developers get high and mighty about validating HTML and CSS -- my customers could give a damn as long as the site looks good.
- If your response to #4 above is "Well, you need to adhere to standards to make it looks the same in all browsers", you're mostly right but save the comment -- it's definitely not always the case.
- I look at most advanced regular expressions like they're written in Arabic. It takes me forever to understand them.
- For the life of me, I'll never understand the popularity of HTML lists. I think they're completely overrated.
- I'd put my CSS skills up against anyone.
- I think that any developer that calls him/herself a "webmaster" should strongly reconsider their title. Why not "HTML-inator", "Markup Manager", or "Code Captain"?
- I own more domains than I'll ever use and am always thinking of more to buy.
- At 24, I'm still not sure if this is the career for me.
- I don't think IE6 is really as bad as everyone thinks, but only because I think IE7 is atrocious.
- I visit my own blog all the time to look things up.
Look forward to more in the future. I'm seemingly always full of annoyances. Also, feel free to share your confessions!
