re: Even QT and JavaFX are "polluted" by CSS. Like JS, CSS is not the perfect language but is the best we have for now for client apps.

Even with the disparity in abstraction level between desktop and mobile operating system development environments, making cross-learning and cross-development more difficult?

With the advent of FireMonkey (Delphi for Android/iOS) and Xamarin (.NET for Android/iOS), this can safely be considered a solved problem.

that doesn't address how much more difficult the Windows API is to learn than JS.

The Windows API was an example. Even if you use wxWidgets or (my favorite GUI framework) IUP, you can be sure that there will be no major OS upgrade in the next two weeks that breaks everything. This can not be said about Chrome's and Firefox's JavaScript interpreters.

Okay, well then evangelize your favorite cross platform GUI framework instead of lecturing JS devos about JS.

Lmao when have Chrome's or Firefox's JavaScript interpreters ever broken a single thing?

"Lmao" (please try to keep your questions at least relatively civil, "lmao" looks dumb and won't make you win this argument), you are aware that both V8 and SpiderMonkey (or whatever is the current name of that thing) are constantly updated and extended with non-standard "ECMAScript" features? You are aware that every single Chrome update has - so far - broken one or more websites?

Feel free to use your favorite search engine instead of lmao'ing at me.

I didn't realize I'm in any sort of argument right now
I was just requesting specifics, of which I received none so far.

Can you give me an example of serious breakage from a Chrome or FF update in recent history?

I googled the last 4 versions of chrome before I got bored and got one bug in timezones that was fixed within that same version.

Neither was I before you started to laugh at me. That was not nice.
