I'm a serial user of the double __ space after a period — even though people tell me it's obsolete in the computer-world, I can't shake the habit from my 7th grade typing class.

comment Is there a name for web applications that do most of the navigation on the client side?
I've got 2 downvotes for this question, if anyone can guess or tell me why, I'd be grateful. Too easy, doesn't show research, off-topic, makes bad or wrong assumptions, annoying...? I asked this because I couldn't think of any way to Google for this question.

comment Is fewer lines of code always better?
@mouviciel For that matter, why not methodThree(b).methodTwo(a).methodOne(c,d);? Still one, still modular, more readable.
