Kevin Vigneault:

I don’t believe that the overall page length itself is inherently problematic. I have noticed though that in many responsive designs, purposeful groupings of content are easy to spot on larger screens, but get muddled when things start to stack on mobile screens.

This is probably mostly a problem on “content” sites in which you smash things down into the ol’ tube of content. I don’t mind the tube, but I think Kevin is doing some smart thinking here. There are plenty of different patterns that can happen while tubizing, and it’s probably not thought about enough.

This site is particularly guilty. A quick document.documentElement.offsetHeight test showed 14749px, more than double the height of an example Kevin pointed out that was a bit excessive.

safaripreviewiconApple today released a new update for Safari Technology Preview, the experimental browser Apple first introduced in March of 2016. Apple designed the Safari Technology Preview to test features that may be introduced into future release versions of Safari.

Safari Technology Preview release 24 includes fixes and improvements for Web API, JavaScript, CSS, Web Inspector, Rendering, Accessibility, and more. Both User Timing and Link Preload are new experimental features in this version of Safari Technology Preview.

The Safari Technology Preview update is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store to anyone who has downloaded the browser. Full release notes for the update are available on the Safari Technology Preview website.

Apple’s aim with Safari Technology Preview is to gather feedback from developers and users on its browser development process. Safari Technology Preview can run side-by-side with the existing Safari browser and while designed for developers, it does not require a developer account to download.
