Tech: World Wide Web creator Tim Berners-Lee: Sorry about the slashes

  • Look at all the paper and trees that could have been saved if people had not had to write or type out those slashes on paper over the years — not to mention the human labour and time spent typing those two keystrokes countless millions of times in browser address boxes.
  • Tim Berners-Lee • Admitting that the double-slashes separating the http: and the web address were really kinda useless and unnecessary for the design of the Web. He goes further to apology: “There you go, it seemed like a good idea at the time.” Apology NOT accepted. This fills us with RAGE! • source
