Every website should prominently expose a timestamp that tells the user when it was created.
@martin What would that timestamp refer to? The writing of the content? The act of publishing it? The time when it was rendered (e.g. from Markdown to HTML)?
Every website should prominently expose three timestamps specifying when it was composed, published, and rendered.
@martin There was one in early HTML Maybe they're just not showing it. Also you can get last changed dates and checksums from the server headers. Do a HEAD call & check headers & status code to see if the page has changed before any GET call to fetch its large payload.
@martin soon enough, every user will have to prominently expose a timestamp that tells websites when the user was created
