@polychrome >AJAX appears

Even back then I knew that someone's opened Pandora Box.

@polychrome this is my history with JavaScript too. It's an unfolding nightmare. I can't help thinking node.js is the product of lazy developers not wanting to learn any other languages.

@polychrome electron would be at least slightly less awful if it didn't have a separate installation for each program
