[John Gruber](http://daringfireball.net/linked/2011/11/09/progress) on the progression of web technologies.

Keep this quote in mind when the next version of [Viddler](http://viddler.com/) is released. Sometimes you just have to get rid of things for the sake of making progress. It isn't easy. But progress rarely is.
