w3schools is my go-to site for HTML, CSS, and javascript. I don't work with these technologies every day, so when I do I need a quick reminder, and w3schools provides just the right combination of succinct references and interactive example code. Really it's an essential resource.

The fellow who's so upset about their coding standards--I would suggest he visit their "Help us" page[1] and the "Forum" page[2] where he can contribute his expertise.

For a free, low-ad site, w3schools is remarkably useful. I hope this kind of article doesn't damage them too much. I'd be quite upset if they went away, or if they became more ad-heavy or subscriber-based to pay for all the fancy updates that he wishes they'd do.
