"Microsoft’s original intention was to have one image for favorites (a shortcut) and one for elsewhere (an icon). The feature got pushed through before it could move through the W3C, but it never fully came to fruition."

"My dear friend and mentor Mario Šestak has a saying, which I think really captures the essence of a problem that I’m trying to illustrate here: “Don’t just blindly copy design elements, copy the principles.”"
"the layout of an app might change a little from 'phone to tablet, but it is still fundamentally fixed, as all variations have to be anticipated and designed by the developer in advance, so it cannot adapt to users who need even larger fonts, or perhaps people with dexterity difficulties who require large touch targets, or both at the same time."
"A lot has been written about variable fonts ever since they were introduced with the new OpenType 1.8 specification late last year. But from a practical point of view, for web designers and developers, what can we expect?"
"The irony is that as we have become more open and more easily connected through technology and devices, the harder it is for us to understand each other correctly.
