It was made the default on the web years ago because content generally flows from the top left corner to the bottom right. So that was made the zero.

What do you mean “y axis flipped”?

Coordinates starting in the top corner of pixels and other geometries instead of bottom like on a normal Cartesian grid

I don't think I've ever noticed!

Yikes, that would make me twitchy.

In most computer graphic libraries the start always was on top left corner. It’s also where tube monitors started to “draw”. Where is the first letter located on a printed page? It’s top left corner.

I thought it was to allow text messages to .uoy teg ot neercs eht fo tuo emoc They are coming down to your size, ant.

In matrices, row numbers also go from top to bottom. (Row 4 is below row 3) It’s a very similar confusion because there’s a lot of linear algebra used in graphics, and pixel values are sometimes represented as matrices.
