Oh, And An Inside Baseball Aside

If you include that Google “Like-alike” button on your site, could you please do yourself and your readers the favor of checking it out in various browsers?

Because it’s really bloody annoying to have text you really want to read blocked out by that bloody button thanks to its preference for inserting itself wherever it damned well pleases.

Example:

In this case, it’s not particularly hard to guess what’s obscured by Google “Don’t Be Evil”‘s retarded button, but that’s not always the case.

Seriously. We are fresh out of shits to give when it comes to Google, but we hate having our favorite websites messed up with their crap and yes, in case you’re wondering, we’re using the very latest version of FireFox, so it’s not because we’re evil Luddites refusing to move with the times.

And this is just one example. Please, bloggers, do yourselves a favor and check out if your brand new add-on actually works with browsers before you add it. And if it doesn’t, take a deep breath and consider whether the cool factor of having it there outweighs the “curse the testicles of the fuckhead who added this useless piece of shit that I never cared about to begin with” factor before you insert it in your code.

This has been a public service announcement.

Thatisall.

    I am not a fan of Google+. It always seemed like the “+” indicated something more that they hadn’t yet decided to provide.

    Deej….LOL, I know what you mean.

    Having to test stuff on, not only browsers, but other platforms is getting to be more and more of a ‘fuck it I’ll hire me 5 teenage Korean chicks to do it for me and let me focus on the business plan’ issue. :em05:
