[ANN] The MLED project gets a new website


Hi fellow Slackers,

After two weeks of hard work, here's the brand-new MLED website:

https://www.microlinux.eu/

This new version is compatible with mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. Everything has been edited and updated. New information has been added. The documentation has been moved from PDF to a series of online pages. And of course, the whole website is still hosted on one of my public servers running Slackware - what else?

The french translation has been moved to https://fr.microlinux.eu.

And the old site is still available here: http://archive.microlinux.eu/

Cheers,

Niki

follows the contemporary web-page fashion. This will make it appear more 'modern' to some users.

Personally, I hate it (the fashion, not your web-site in particular).

The new one just has slowly rotating curved lines in the middle of the browser window. The old one renders content nicely. Is the CSS ok on the new page?

It works perfectly on a standard Firefox browser - and any standard web browser for the matter. If your heavily customized Firefox profile can't view it, you can still use Links to navigate the content.

Great to see that you updated your guides!

The site looks good, (although not my style), but it took forever to load. I'm on a 60Mbps cable connection and Pale Moon.

I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic or not. My experience on the site was the same as yours until I temporarily turned on javascript for the site, then the site worked for me.

Almost. JS introduces a double handful of speed and security issues. Not failing gracefully (with fallback) is a surprise in 2017.

I was very much hoping instead to see something built with HTML and CSS.

Unfortunately, I don't make the rules here.

I would show both links to those that do make the rules there, since the other search engines will probably follow Google soon and start penalizing such blocked sites.

Depending on the country in which the site is based, failing to provide a working site may be in violation of accessibility laws.

Save both work and increase your market by n percent by using HTML and CSS instead of JS.

Edit: Here are two positive examples of using CSS without requiring JS:
