I feel the same this year as I have in the past. Web standards, as an overall idea, has entirely taken hold and won the day. That’s worth celebrating, as the web would be kind of a joke without them. So now, our job is to uphold them. We need to cry foul when we see a browser go rogue and ship an API outside the standards process. That version of competition is what could lead the web back to a dark place where we’re creating browser-specific versions. That becomes painful, we stop doing it, and slowly, the web loses.
