Americans collectively spending 8 billion hours a year stuck in traffic, (...) lifting off and cruising above snarled roadways has considerable appeal.

Comment Re:jQuery monoculture (Score 1) 34

What are you talking about?

Many web apps will come bundled with jQuery to support older browsers. Even if you do not use it, it is there. You notice it when you try to deploy Content-Security-Policy, because you need script-src: unsafe-inline.

The usual price of monoculture are security problems. Same software everywhere is a sweet target for attackers.
