Just Normal Web Things

The author expresses frustration with the trend of building websites and apps that deviate from normal web functionality. They highlight the prevalence of JavaScript-driven developments and the neglect of basic accessibility requirements. The author points out several aspects they wish were allowed in web projects, such as the ability to copy text, navigate links traditionally, zoom in without distorting the layout, have hover styles, retain browser history for UI changes, view scroll bars, and not have typical browser shortcuts overridden. They acknowledge the need for better accessibility practices and invite feedback on Mastodon.
