- Winamp - it really whips the Llama's ass!
Yes I know it still somewhat exists, but nothing seems to happen on the current website anymore.
- Old Firefox. They really ran themselves into the ground over the last few years and basically made Chrome the new market leader. What the hell were they thinking when they integraded some random videochat application, Persona themes, bundled a "Mr. Robot" advertising addon with their browser and removed a lot of customization options and made a lot of addons incompatible when they ditched XUL?
They deserve to be forgotten for all of these actions, but I also don't like having Chrome as "the one browser" nowadays. We're back to square one, it's just like IE6 all over again.
- Pidgin / Miranda. It was nice to have an application that bundled all messenger applications, without any advertising or bloat. Back in the day I had lot of friends in ICQ, MSN, Yahoo, Jabber and more. I was able to chat with all of them using one application. Nowadays we went back to the dark ages with WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal, Facebook Messenger, Instagram and many more that cannot be easily combined.
- Webdesign in general. I don't want to get back to 640x480 and fifty iFrames for navigation, god no. But as a webdesigner, I hate building modern websites sometimes. Big sliders you have to scroll through, unneccessary whitespace, ginourmous fonts...modern websites look very pleasing to the eyes, but navigation-wise they can be a major pain. Mobile-first development has made menu structures worse in a lot of ways. Some designers put in mobile menus on the desktop version. Just stop it already! And I goddamn hate GDPR cookie banners! Politicians that are too old to grasp basic technical things should stay away from breaking the internet.
