Web 2.1 server-side blink tag demonstration

"The server-side blink tag works by using a timed AJAX request, to let a Web 2.1 compatible server update the client document so that the blinking text is turned invisible. This request also triggers another timed AJAX request, which allows the server to restore the blinking text after the requested delay."


"Note: if you did not see the blinking text above, it means that your browser is not compliant with the Web 2.1 standards. An easy way of checking whether your browser is standards compliant is to check whether the installation files for your browser were smaller than 50MB, or the run-time memory usage is less than 300MB. If this is the case, you should download a more recent browser to get the full Web 2.1 experience."

So why did they take away the blink tag anyway? And don't say that it was because it was annoying. If that were the case I can think of many more things that should be "deprecated" first.
