Since someone invented that cool acronym though, that's changing. You would think it shouldn't matter that something has a name, but it does. I remember when the GoF Design Patterns book came out. There was nothing in there I hadn't figured out on my own, but now they had a name! I could say "Singleton" to my co-workers and they would know what I was talking about. I could buy a junior engineer the book, and he would soon be programming at a much higher level.

So having a name helped, and the result is that there are a lot of cool toolkits out there. Since someone else wrote the JavaScript, that means I don't need to test 10 different browser variations.

Which means I can make the site much easier to use and more interactive. Huzzah!
