re: Captain Marvel's Official Website is Amazing VIEW POST


I'd be much more into this if they actually built it in HTML, but it appears to be yet another Javascript-emitting-DOM-nodes site, which is completely period-inappropriate and terrible for accessibility (I mean, even moreso than Geocities sites ever were). What is with modern web designers?


I don't think that was the point. I'm sure you can appreciate the spirit of what they're trying to accomplish with this site.


I can appreciate the spirit while also criticizing them for using inaccessible technologies for building it. I mean, regardless of period-appropriateness, this site will not render in a lot of user agents.

Fair point aside, I don't think that this is the site to make that argument about. You tell me, is the approach they took the faster and cheaper way of getting it done?

I mean, the use of a framework to build a static website is overkill and seems like it would take way more effort than just writing an HTML document directly. I wasn't involved in their development process at all though.

This is just a gigantic peeve of mine because a lot of websites have become ridiculously inaccessible because so many things are reinventing HTML and CSS the long way around, thus causing more resources to be used needlessly and impacting usability and accessibility because none of them actually implement the stuff that the browser already gives you for free.


Well they had to have actual features. Like the video player with progress bar.
