Slash vs. Backslash

April 14th, 2010 3:11pm Leave a comment

This has been pissing me off for a while now, but I never bothered writing about it. XKCD clarified it. Let’s learn the difference between a forward slash (/) and a backslash (\)

If  forward slash were to tip over, it would fall right, which is forward /
If a backslash were to tip over, it would fall left, which is backwards \

This is not a hard concept. They are in two completely different spots on the keyboard. In URLs, just say slash. People say backslash all the time and it makes you sound dumb.
