    Banks and other companies had dedicated circuits at 32 or 64 Kbps symetric.

    Two years before that, we only had email service, you had to dial-in to an SMTP server which received all emails, and let you download yours via POP3.

    Interesting post. I mainly use vim for all my text editing work. I started with vi when I was a sysadmin of the first internet provider in Bolivia back in 1998.

    You are right, it is not only about JavaScript. We need to learn about accessibility and make the site useable for visual impaired people. I will read about that too.
