Warning: another rant ahead.

I’m so tired of omnipresent animations and gradients on all “modern” websites. Take an example of Stripe, they have just released stripe.com/enterprise which lags as hell on my quite fast M1 Macbook Air. This machine has a lot of power but still struggles with the website.

I don’t get why there is a need for such things. I know that Stripe always has been a playground for these kinds of experiments but after all these years it seems to be boring and unnecessary. It doesn’t serve anything but a couple of tweets about how nice website they have… This is madness.

  • @panr Honestly, this one's not even *that* bad as far as animations-on-scroll are concerned. I find the Apple-style ones much more exhausting...

  • @radex I haven't been on Apple website for maybe 4 years 🙈 The last thing I remember is the Mac Pro website — I guess now they are even worse...
