The latest over-hyped web technology revolution finally, a few months late, hits my Mac.
So imagine there’s a large website you use every day. But there’s something that’s always bugged you about it. Maybe the colour is a bit grating; or those buttons are naff; or there’s some blindingly obvious feature or User Interface opportunity that the site owners just don’t get.
Up until now, your options were to:
- Grit your teeth and continue using the site; or
- Send them an email that would get lost in the 15 layers of misdirection between the people responsible for responding to emails and the people responsible for site design and maintenance. Assuming the latter were interested in what you, a mere user, could possibly have to say.
Well, no more.
