The unreasonable effectiveness of simple HTML

I've told this story at conferences - but due to the general situation I thought I'd retell it here.

A few years ago I was doing policy research in a housing benefits office in London. They are singularly unlovely places. The walls are brightened up with posters offering helpful services for people fleeing domestic violen


@Edent This one hit close to home: I spent my teenage years slowly scouring the web using my PSP, and yeah, you can forget about anything javascript heavy...

Also, nowadays the PSP is near unusable: it's got ancient TLS that isn't supported anywhere anymore

@aearil it does worry me how many people we exclude with upgraded TLS.

@Edent Yeah, though in the case of pre-heartbleed TLS, the harm resulting of keeping it enabled would've been way worse
