Without going into too much detail, Google updated the Montserrat font and its weights remotely, affecting millions of designs across the world wide web which integrate with Google fonts. This affected me personally, as I use Montserrat for my blog titles.
I absolutely despise API's which introduce breaking changes. All of these breaking changes destroy any legacy applications which are using the API's. Google in particular has a penchant for deprecating, breaking, or removing their API's: remember when the internet of shit's favorite Samsung smart fridge couldn't connect to its dumb calendar? Lol. This time, millions of websites across the web were forcing shitty text overflows down everyone's throats.. Who wants that???
I'm not sure who's in charge of these decisions, but developers - the best rule of thumb to go by is once an API is deployed to production, everything in that API spec cannot change. LEAVE IT BE! The end consumer is always expecting things to abide by the status quo. The majority of users will not update their application, and they will immediately complain about anything that doesn't work at a prolific scale.
It's an awful user experience. All designers and programmers should consider these legacy customers and find creative solutions to scale and expand their API's rather than forcing major upgrades.
Before I sign off here, I'd like to talk about one of my nightmares. I can hear it now...
what about Internet Explorer??
If you don't want to deal with an awful browser or device (Windows phone I'm looking at you), do not build applications for these devices in the first place. Once you decide to start supporting anything at all, you will have to support it for all its technological life.
