web apps, support retina displays already

A lot of web apps, even new ones, can’t seem to manage serving good images for retina displays. All you have to do is explicitly set the dimensions of your images, and serve image files that are double the width and height.

You can see this solution in action in Counter, my web app for counting.

If that’s too easy, you could always draw everything with CSS.
