JavaScript survey: Devs love a bit of React, but Angular and Cordova declining. And you're not alone... a chunk of pros also feel JS is 'overly complex'

Very much more of this sort of thing, please

Hear hear. Very much hear hear.

I've been growingly concerned that El Reg is turning away from its USP.

Viz., (ex)front-line practitioners, writing entertainingly but with ability to land more telling blows than others due to actually understanding what's important and understanding what's going on under-the-hood and behind-the-scenes. Not just pure IT but relevant and insightful, eg Worstall. This, in a nutshell, is how TheRegister has garnered a global gold-class reputation.

Latterly, it's all got very samey-samey, little or no UTH/BTS insight, cookiecutter journo-ese. Very occasional and very refreshing returns to form (eg Dabbsy, Stobb), but so few now as to start mourning the loss of what ElReg stood for.
