The thing about (mobile) browsers

I am not old enough to have been a participant in the first browser wars, when they ended 1998 I was about to meet my first computer, which was in 1999, and I couldn’t care less about who made my browser, or my OS for that matter. What was important was that the computer ran […]

One step too far
