Ironically, their site is not server-side rendered, doesn't have a
<title>tag and has very few meta tags. I guess it's a case of do as I say, not as I do…
Test driven development! Gotta write those tests first. :P
Mirrors that ex-google guy's twitter thread/rant thing the other week where he said that Google prioritises shipping over everything else, because shipping = promotions.
Whether that's true or not, who knows but not even a title tag, cmon Goog!
Think this is more just web devs getting so deep into framework soup that they don't even look at what is actually coming out the other end.
I know a lot of devs I work these days don't seem very phased that their web apps spew literally hundreds of errors to the console when you load them.
As someone who has worked for google (in an agency) I can say this is not true at all.
It appears they do have a title tag. I wonder if someone frantically added it in the 9 hours since you made this comment?
Looks like Google gets better in their own material design specs following :))
I still wish they'd ease up on mixing Product Sans and Roboto. This is basic design 101 stuff. The former is also a lousy choice for a UI typeface and they've started forcing it into their apps.
