re: What is a website that you visit regularly despite its technical quality and user experience? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

meetup.com -- bugs that seriously impact the ability to edit events, yet has a good user-base and existing groups.

WhatsApp Web -- poor performance and constantly loses connection, but alas, I have yet to convert everybody I know to using Signal, which has a stable non-web client.

My banks all have shitty sites.

Honourable mention to dev.to, just because I always get the lost connection screen and must press Ctrl+F5 in Firefox.

 

While we're talking about web versions of primarily mobile chat platforms, the web version of Messenger drives me crazy!
It has that classic contenteditable div bug where after typing a few characters it jumps the cursor back to the beginning of the line and you look like an idiot sending "ahye" instead of "yeah." That bug alone makes it next to unusable, even though it otherwise would heavily enhance that service for me.

 

I didn't know about that bug! I thought that was just a slow computer thing when I'm using messenger at work, since that's the only time I've seen it. Absolutely drives me bonkers every time.

I honestly just stopped using it after that bug happened several times in a row one day.

 

Funny, because I made the move to WhatsApp from Signal.

We constantly had problems losing messages on Signal. A friend of ours didn't get some messages and we never found out why.

 

Check out Monzo if you're annoyed with your bank - I hated the UX of my old bank so switched over... Best thing I ever did! 😅
