Is this evil? Analytics via CSS ↦
In a recent episode of JS Party we were told that you can program in CSS. But you can do some less complicated things with bigger payoffs. You can use CSS to track users that have JS disabled. Not sure how to feel about that. This post covers the rough idea of it and wants your thoughts on the practice.

I’m a big fan of the hand-rolled “is it evil?” poll you included at the end of the post. A cool, lo-fi way to collect others’ thoughts on an idea. Also the bots’ thoughts. 😉
Yeah, because bots are .. people … too? I’m hoping the bots will navigate both and I can just check the diff in the counts and see the actual result :P I thought it went well in line with the spirit of the post.
