I now understand why modern web pages are ugly!

I throwing out this provocative comment to get some discussion going.

I finally understand why modern web pages are so ugly!

They appear blocky and disjointed because they are designed to look good for the smart phone addicted crowd at the expense of a real computer user.

The responsive CSS used is so close to a broken page I thought I was mis-reading it at first.

Let's hear your comments.

A lot of designs are way too flashy. I make sure mine are responsive to help with page load speed but have you tried AMP... way too limited! I will not be using that any time soon.

I have not.

I tend not to use anything that relies on a third party site to add to the content. I've seen way too many sites polluted with ads slowed to a crawl by the stuff they are importing.

Yes, its true. It feels as if we are going back to 2004 days, when font sizes were huge, screen resolution/size was less...

Generally I find that most websites appear ok on Mobiles and on my desktop - 27" screen. However on my laptop 15.6" many sites are hard to read, content takes up too much of the screen etc.

I was extremely frustrated when I started this thread.

A month or so later I discovered that @media can control virtually every aspect of a web page. That makes it a lot easier. Determining exact where to set that point can still be a challenge as there are so many devices with varying screen resolutions.

That was my main issue. I used to fret about it a lot in the beginning, but eventually I just began to chill. If something need a little tweak - modifying the style sheet for screen size was always an option.

Agreed, but learning where to put the { and the } on the conditionals was a lot of fun.

I actually don't like to code in CSS, i use SASS all the time. It makes code more organized.

Plus alot of people are using phones these days. So you know
