@jalcine I used to use a mobile network here that used 3G (and a congested network) to save money when I was a student and boy that gave me a whole new appreciation for light web apps and sites
And by that I mean, of course, Facebook. 😇
1) There's no strong case against testing in low speed environments: it literally helps you improve speed times when testing code
2) This "request for evidence" is something you can handle as easily and in the same amount of time you've requested it over here: http://bfy.tw/LeDr
there's bursts of 4G when you're stood in a station, but otherwise you'll be happy to have 3G, and you'll be unhappy to have 2G cuz most things just don't work on it
and i don't know how much of this is due to TLS connection establishment
@veer66 @mishari @jalcine (btw you can do video and audio on crappy connections, you just gotta downsample by A Lot. but when I was stealing wifi for my dorm floor from two floors above, dammit I was thankful for finding 0.000001 bits per second online radio stations. lesson: scaling down can be as important as scaling up)
@jalcine Holy crap, this is an option?
@Argus yup! Firefox and most Blink-/Webkit-powered browsers support it!
@jalcine That's really cool. Thanks for sharing.
@jalcine 2G, so people traveling thru Germany can experience Internet, too
In addition to faster web sites and smoother user experience, this also helps reduce overall energy usage (datacenters, all internet nodes, mobile network, and mobile devices battery). This includes indirect energy costs (hardware manufacturing).
Social is the primary social media platform for the forth coming fourth version of Play Vicious, a new initiative built to bring attention to the plethora of creative acts that don't get the shine they deserve.
