Beyond just repeating the same thing!?! Apple has, once again, provided no real migration path as they change APIs.

It’s this we killed this API, good luck attitude that is so annoying. Devs have to re-code/test/debug DOM manipulation to achieve NOTHING.

So rather than Apple making this (DOM) better for all, Apple decided to spread pain point to every single developer that needs DOM APIs?

Instead of devs using limited resources to build amazing new stuff, they are forced to re-invent tech to maintain features because🤷‍♂️.

My take: Swift optionals requires actively considering nil possibility, where dev gets away with ignoring in obj-c. If a param/property is optional, compiler barfs unless you specify what to do based on nil possibility. GUARANTEED safe? No. Safer? I think so.

Dear Apple, after you’ve audited your macOS High Sierra for blatant security flaws, maybe audit the videos drivers too. Really tired of coming back to my Mac to see it has restarted because of another kernel panic. More kernel panics in a month than I’ve seen in prior 10 years.
