Hacker News 拿到 hackernews.com 了

Hacker News 上看到「Hackernews.com (hackernews.com)」這則消息,有人注意到 hackernews.com 被指到 news.ycombinator.com...

With a different registrar to ycombinator.com, this is likely not owned by Y Combinator, and therefore difficult to trust that it won't start being malicious in the future.

不過後來 dang (Hacker News 的管理員) 有出來證實這個網域名稱目前是在他們旗下了:

It's owned by YC now. We got it earlier this year. That's why it redirects to HN!

以 Hacker News 的性質來說不是太重要,算是有機會拿掉就順便拿下來...

Hacker News

早上看到「Tell HN: Thank you for not redesigning Hacker News」這篇,作者在網路速度受限的地區,上各種網站幾乎都不會動,但 Hacker News 沒有改用一堆前端框架,而是保留使用 HTML 反而讓頁面維持極小:

I’m currently in a country with low speed internet and the entire ‘modern’ web is basically unusable except HN, which still loads instantly. Reddit, Twitter, news and banking sites are all painfully slow or simply time out altogether.

To PG, the mods and whoever else is responsible: thank you for not trying to ‘fix’ what isn’t broken.

順手開了一下網路工具來看,發現單一元件最大的居然是 favicon XDDD:

Wikipedia 上列出來的相容性,如果只支援 IE11+ 的話,看起來可以改用 PNG,大小就已經有明顯的改善了:
