Article: Back to the Basics

by on April 1, 2012

This was done for April Fool’s Day, in case you didn’t figure that out. Still, we’ve included a screen shot of the “vintage” HTML w/no CSS version of the site at the bottom:

I woke up this morning and realized that I was sick of over-the-top design, pointless wasted kilobytes, slow page loads, and everything else we can think of in regards to the Web today. Worse, I was contributing to it.

April Fool's Day

As such, I decided to go back to the good, but simple design tools that were popular back in the Web of the 1990s—the good old days. Why should people with browsers made after the Cliton Administartion be the only ones who can enjoy the Web? Why do you need a smartphone, tablet or new computer, when something that is 33MHz will work just fine?

Because of this, I have taken SchwarzTech back to the basics. Simple, clean, and uncluttered. Of course, not everything is in the proper places, but I’m sure you’ll figure it out. Never mind that some of the HTML code is considered ”depricated” by the Worldwide Web Consortium…it’s a conspiracy to get people to get new gadgets…the W3C in the pocket of Big Tech.

Nevertheless, redesigns don’t happen overnight. This is just a first step, and if you see anything that looks too CSS-y or JavaScript-tasting, be assured that it will be removed shortly. Enjoy browsing like the days when you had a 14.4kbps modem!
