you say that, but I’m reflecting to you what the industry, overall, has taken it to mean. You and I have not been able to change the minds of hundreds of thousands of developers by insisting harder that they’re using language wrong. Time to trying something else.
Do you think the issue is really terminology, or more that as a whole developers are self obsessed assholes who project “it works for me” onto everyone else? I know that’s harsh, but this feels More like a lack of professionalism than understanding.
I agree about poor performance on most sites, including ones w/ responsive UIs. But in those cases, the responsive UI is a plus-it’s one priority they nailed while failing others. Responsive describes a fluid UI and nothing beyond that. It pairs w/ perf practices that need uptake
Anyway, I’d love a holistic term that describes responsible/ethical web delivery, but responsive interfaces should still live within that. We should consider it a win that one good mobile optimization (albeit visual) did take. We still need to sell the stuff that pairs with it.
