After reading some articles on DN, I've noticed that there is a big focus on adapting CSS frameworks like Bootstrap or Foundation (haven't seen one for Foundation yet, but I assume one is in the works) to look like Google's Material Design. For some reason, this bothers me.
Whenever I see a new implementation of Material Design for the browser, it just doesn't seem right. It seems out of place, like it doesn't belong on a website. I'm wondering if I'm the only one with this opinion.
From my understanding, Material Design was created for the same purpose that Apple's Design Standards for iOS were created. People don't create web applications that follow the iOS design standards, so why should they create applications that follow the Android Standards? It just seems like we're trying to use the design standard to create products for platforms the standard wasn't intended for, and it seems out of place.
I fear that with the adoption of Material Design for web applications, all of our web applications are going to look like it and the originality of sites is going to be ruined. Don't get me wrong, Material Design looks very nice on Android. I just don't want too much of a good thing.
What does everyone else think?
