What I don’t like about web programming

I have been doing web programming as my job for the past 6 years now. The problem is that for the first 5 I was working on my own php website built from scratch, with my own very simple framework. My new job forced me to work in different technologies like Magento, Alfresco, Typo3, Symfony, Wordpress and mostly on Koha, a perl Library management system. Working with all those very different technologies and very different way of thinking to ultimately output html code made me think about what I like about web programming and what I really don’t like. I ranted about it on identi.ca yesterday, but you know how hard it is to really say anything in 140 characters. Here are a few toughts.

Do you disagree with anything I said? Feel free to post what you like and don’t like in the comments below.
