PSA for (Web) devs: not everyone has the latest and fastest machine. Test your stuff on older, slower machines to foster empathy and provide great UX 🤟

Just wanted to give @vaillancourtmax a belated 👍 for his shout-out of Unlauncher [jkuester.github.io/unlauncher/] (the minimalist Android launcher I maintain) in his post on "Turning my smartphone into a boring tool" [maximevaillancourt.com/blog/tu].

It is great to see more people interested in using a smartphone as a "tool, not distraction"!

What if this place was just a platform for talking to people? What if we didn't compete for social space? What if there was actually respect for the ideas of others regardless of their social standing?

I see that possibility here. Please don't screw it up.
