it's a bit of a weasel phrase to say "accidents like this do and will happen" when this is the technology (fat client webapps) under criticism functioning properly.
@wrl @platypus @misty I think the problem is to replicate browser behaviour exactly. It can be complicated to figure out which JS should still be loaded. Probably impossible to do properly until a fully-blown rendering engine like Gecko is used.
I am fully with you guys that this is wrong. I believe that webpages should be simple and downloadable.
glammr.us is a space for folks interested in productive conversation about, well, galleries, libraries, archives, museums, memory work and records. It is pronounce “glamorous” as our work are often charmingly or fascinatingly attractive, especially in a mysterious or magical way. Sometimes it is also full of excitement, adventure, and unusual activity (oh, yes). It is also inspired by Toys’R’us to showcase the fun playful side of glammr.us tooters. But you don't necessarily have to only post about GLAMMR-related topics, bring your whole self. Talk about fun things you saw, your exciting day or even your struggles.
