The web gets more complicated every week. With each new feature added to browsers, being explored by security reasearchers and other things, it gets harder for developers to grasp all that. Don’t get me wrong — it’s not that I dislike all the new features, I really like many of them. But I also realise that many of them are being built for edge-cases, for specific services that need them. The normal developer will never need it and yet, it’s part of their learning curve, part of books, videos and other educational material. It’s hard to stay sane, to not learn everything new as developer. I just want to assure you this week that this is fine. You shouldn’t quit learning new stuff but stay confident that your job will not cease to exist just because you know how to use the latest new JavaScript Web Sharing API or how to use a new Clear Site-Data header. It’s fine to not know everything — pick your knowledge wisely. Count on others to help you and have a strategy to learn new things once you really need to use them.

Last week I has a link to Mozilla’s Privacy Guide — here it is, the former one was broken.
