Personally, the last weeks have been not very easy and I’m not yet clear whether to share the reasons for this publicly or not but I’m slowly getting back to work again and found out that things are in change again. It’s not only that I found a lot of new tools, new thoughts about distributed networks like Mastodon but also that Google is discussing how to change or deprecate the URL and they’re already experimenting with this, resulting in a heated debate between them and developers who see a lot of issues with their approaches. On the other hand, the browser vendors also implement cool stuff so we can now use Variable Web Fonts in all browsers and get new JavaScript APIs in nearly every release. This is so cool and I can’t wait to give CSS Shapes another try once Microsoft Edge has support for it.
