The replies I've seen to this post are so frustrating. You can definitely use the latest Javascript features and APIs while still providing access to older browsers and devices. You don't have to provide special access, determine a list of supported versions, or build a specific version for those browsers/devices.

Use a proper HTML foundation and your site will work without Javascript in nearly any browser. That covers weird edge cases like the one described. Then use the module/nomodule technique so you can write the sleekest code with all the modern amenities and still provide an ES5 bundle to browsers that need it. Then your site will work in nearly all cases, no matter the device, browser, or bugs in your code.

WebAssembly and WASI show great promise for the future of computing outside the browser, and the WebAssembly component model aims to improve the portability, cross-language, and composition story for Wasm. This article explains the goals of the component model, and showcases how to use tooling from the Bytecode Alliance to build and consume such components.

We studied 10,000 websites and found that their design has become more uniform over time. What does this mean for the future of creative expression on the internet?

I think this is sort of to be expected. Like it says in the article, as a medium matures, design patters are formulated. Divergence from those patterns to test and tweak them is always good, but having some general uniformity improves familiarity and ease of use. But I think that only applies to corporate websites; I hope we'll continue to see personal sites with funky design used as places for expression.

Not only are we enabling folks to express themselves uniquely on the web, unlike the cookie cutter looks that all the social sites try to put you into. We’re doing it in a way which is standards-based, interoperable, based on open source, and increases the amount of freedom on the web.
