comment Why do dynamic languages make it more difficult to maintain large codebases?
I didn't claim that tooltips, IDEs or mice were invented in statically typed languages. I only claim that in an object oriented language, a function's name is in general insuffient to identify the function, and hence tooling can not know which function is being called, and display the right tooltip, or inline the right function, and so on - at least not without asking the user.

Perhaps I should have mentioned I am talking about object oriented programming languages with dynamic dispatch. Such methods are not global, but figuring out which implementation is going to be called requires knowledge about the type of the receiver.

comment Why were frames deprecated in HTML5, but not iFrames?
Why are frameset elements bad for "usability" and "accessibility" but iframe elements aren't?
