Re: #2

Seriously, though. The comment on how the best developers don't look at docs tells me how little the poster understands about development. My mentor at my first job (one of the best programmers I've ever met) recommended to me that I have a prominent link in my browser toolbar to the Java API docs. 11 years later, it's still there, with another shortcut to the docs for String.format (that stuff's black magic). And don't even get me started on how often I find myself staring at Node's 'fs' and 'path' docs.
