    That's a bummer. On the other hand when your yearly revenue is approx. 4.5B, 4.4M doesn't seem like a huge loss.

    Shitty form width field + pointless dumbass client side scripttardery == /FAIL/. It's as simple as that. Particularly when it's JavaScript for things that:

    1) HTML can now do on its own with "modern" features.

    2) Should be re-checked server-side since no user side scripttardery can ever be trusted.

    Client side scripted validation is in most cases an accessibility failure, unnecessary, likely to waste bandwidth not save it, and worst of all more likely to create bounce. Aka "screw it, we'll order somewhere else"

    Dumbest part though, I bet the people who made Chipotle's website will make endless lame halfwitted excuses as to why there's nothing wrong with how they did it. That's how the industry works, such idiotic claims of "it's fine" holding about as much water as the unsafe "organic foods" and other such "natural" bullshit said company peddles to the feeble minded.

    JUST like how they prove they're too stupid to build websites in the first place with halfwitted dumbass code like this:

    Code (markup):
    ... and a site with ZERO graceful degradation in terms of scripting or style. Hence the 56k of HTML to deliver 1.78k of plaintext and six content images -- not even 6k of HTML's flipping job, when they don't even have the page content IN THE FLIPPING MARKUP and instead go full Gungan with "AJAX for nothing" -- well, nothing other than making the site harder to maintain, slower for users, and likely taking them three to five times longer to develop.

    It's a poster child for everything I'm always talking about. Somebody unqualified to build websites saddled them up and took them for a ride. Couldn't happen to a more deserving company given how they pretty much exist to peddle the "natural/organic" scam.

    Seriously, go to their home page and view source... now look at the CONTENT of the page you just did a "view source" on. What the F*** do the two even have to do with each-other?!? THAT is developer 3i.
