Google Page Creator

What's the differance between Yahoo's geocities and Google's page creator? 15,000 lines of JavaScript.

In an attempt to keep up on all of Google’s products and services, I often find myself traversing a trail of links that drops me on to the blog of insert your name here. These blogs typically contain a rewrite of a recent post that was made on one of Google’s numerous Official Blogs.

I generally end up skimming the main content of the blog (unless it’s from one of the more interesting bloggers like Philipp Lenssen's or Nathan Weinberg's) so I can get on to reading the comments of other readers. Reading the comments usually provides me with some different perspectives people have on the beta services Google releases or is being rumored to release. All to often though, I am painfully reminded of the short sightedness and stupidity of the general public.

Consider this blog post by Matt Cutts. First though, visit the Google Page Creator tool. Ok, good, now you don’t need to bother reading the post, just keep scrolling until you get to the mostly worthless content (the comments). Take a look at some of these stupid comments:

“Wow, thanks for the heads up. Looks really good that Google is pushing new stuff out (though some might argue that they should be improving current products)! It would be interesting to see where they take this, and if this catches on.” - SL

According to this commentator, Google isn’t improving their current products which must be why they just added chat to Gmail right??

"How is this different from blogger?" - Ben

I want to find Ben so I can ask him how cars are different from trucks.

"No support for Opera! Shame on you, Google." - Asle Ommundsen

Asle, you should feel ashamed for even suggesting that a company waste money supporting a browser that less than 1% of people use. Here is my comment for you: Try Firefox.

"It’s cool but not worth gushing over. Anyone ever hear of Geocities?" - SeoRookie

What a Pudding head.

or maybe they can start supporting web standards without worrying for the browsers.

web is afterall about the markup language not the tool you use to use it?

firefox? kiss my ass.

A good suggestion that would work if the browsers actually supported the standards. But, since they don't it is necessary to write code for browsers rather than for standards. Hopefully as the browsers begin to support the W3C more, we will see more standards based web development.
