Why a form can be the worst UX example ever

    I think laziness and ignorance is the biggest cause of forms not being persisted.

      This.

      Well, it also stems from developers getting ahead of themselves and not using a boring

      to wrap everything with an input. Modern browsers do a lot of the legwork to make sure inputs get persisted on error and than validations get performed. (e.g., If you don't wrap things in a , Chrome won't validate type="email" inputs.)

      I find myself going back to my JavaScript-less roots more and more when doing simple interactions. We try to build the same ideals into Designer News.
