An unaffiliated site, W3Fools, was created to criticise W3Schools and as a message for web designers to not use W3Schools. The site acknowleges that it is good for an elementary introduction saying "For many beginners, W3Schools has structured tutorials and playgrounds that offer a decent learning experience", but for anything more advanced recommends web designers to use resources such as the Mozilla Developer Network and the W3C-supported Web Platform Docs. .
