This is why I stay away from “web programming” :)

Quote from here:

Over the past few months, I’ve been thinking more and more about the general frustrations around web programming in 2014. For example:

  • There are more programming languages than there have ever been; yet it feels like there is no choice

  • We have more experience writing code than we ever have; yet we still struggle to express our requirements in code

  • We have higher level languages than we’ve ever had before; yet it feels like we’re writing more mundane boiler-plate plumbing

  • We have better browser support for standards; yet it’s more work than ever to support all of our users

It feels to me that as an industry, we’re treading water. Every week there’s something new and shiny, but little that progresses the significant things that could make an enormous difference to our jobs.
