Jeremy Keith - Building The Web - View Source 2019
@adactio shares his insights on the current state of the web and web development and its complexity. Expectations of the web have changed : people expect the web to be terrible (especially on mobile). You can do more with less today, but we don't always choose to do so. Fondamental stuff is not (aways) a technology. The goal of any good framework or library should be to make itself redundant. Our priority should always be what is going to make life easier for the user. The worse thing we can do is to assume things are inevitable (FB, Google), but that is just the way things have turned out. They can change. Let's have the imagination of how things could be different. “I am afraid for the web. When I'm done with all this, and when I look around and all the people making websites look like me, then I think we will have failed.”

Adding rel=preconnect to a <link> informs the browser that your page intends to establish a connection to another domain, and that you'd like the process to start as soon as possible.
