The Best of the Internets
I’ve often wondered the same thing.
Note: This post is a rant, but it’s an important rant to make publicly.

If you use Jekyll or Octopress, you might find this rather elegant setup handy.

This is an interesting finding in the realm of accessibility: ARIA being harmful to the experience. As I understand it, the WAI’s recommended interaction and tab flow stems from the way people using AT would tab through traditional desktop interfaces (e.g., Windows). I wonder if, as more people use the Web as their primary means of interacting with software, those mappings have become less relevant, either through loss of muscle memory in the case of long-time AT users or a lack of awareness for those who’ve only used AT since the advent of the Web and Web-based interactions (i.e., folks who’ve never had to navigate their way through complex interfaces like Windows’ Device Manager).
I’d take it a step further: You don’t need a CSS framework.
Is all that weight worth it? Probably not. Play Doom instead.
This is an amazing post from Karolina Szczur concerning who we build for. You should read it.
