            That’s my problem with all these “the modern web sucks” articles. The web of the 90s and 2000s is still not only possible to create, it still exists. Sure, you give up Facebook and Twitter and Javascript and React but if you hate those things that should be easy.

            If you give up all the things that make the modern web suck, you get the web you want. The only downside is you’ve just given up the things that make the modern web… well, modern.
