Why is the Airbnb website and UX utter shit?
Hello Airbnb friends. I do not mean to be rude but your website is slow as balls and the navigation UX, which seems to change every month and rearrange links in new, confusing places, is quite bad.
I’m a host and a guest, and every time I use your website it’s like I’m loading it from a toaster modem. Have you ever heard of a PWA?
Also getting new search results as I move the map is painfully slow compared to Craigslist, and this is on my engineering-grade MacBook Pro.
I know you have a lot of smart frontend engineers based on your contributions to open source, so I’m curious why there’s such a disconnect between your flagship product and the talented personnel.
Would love as much detail and technical explanation as you’re comfortable giving.
