Web design: the <blink> effect

Tutoring web design, you might be asked about legacy issues. The tutor brings up the blink effect.

Today I tried using the <blink> tag in both Chrome and Edge; for me, it worked in neither.

I don’t believe I ever used the blink effect in a published page, but I still wonder why it’s deprecated. If people didn’t like it, then surely they could have simply avoided using it?

Nowadays, blink is achieved by animation. It’s a rare case when accomplishing a specific effect has become more involved, rather than easier, as time has passed.
