My Drafts

I've been thinking about a lot about the state of modern web development and I wanted a place to note ideas, and then over time build up them in a way that is a little more open that me just dumping them into a Google Doc and forgetting about them.

This page is the list of ideas that I've had. There are likely many old drafts dating back many years.

These documents are completely un-developed and are a snapshot of my thoughts at the time. They will be refined over time with research, education and conversations with people in the industry, and in some cases I might delete it.

There are many errors in each of these articles, including and not limited to: spelling, grammatical, ecosystem awareness understanding and plain ignorance.

If you see something you like, don't like, then @ me (, @paul_kinlan) - I won't be offended.

Ideas (Note: this list will always be up to date):

I lead the Chrome Developer Relations team at Google.

We want people to have the best experience possible on the web without having to install a native app or produce content in a walled garden.

Our team tries to make it easier for developers to build on the web by supporting every Chrome release, creating great content to support developers on, contributing to MDN, helping to improve browser compatibility, and some of the best developer tools like Lighthouse, Workbox, Squoosh to name just a few.

I love to learn about what you are building, and how I can help with Chrome or Web development in general, so if you want to chat with me directly, please feel free to book a consultation.
