Got to keep up with the web. Here is a collection of pages I've bookmarked.
Video and Audio tags
The Firefox 3.1 release that Mozilla is looking to push out soon gives us support for the HTML 5 video and audio tags. This is great news for standards developers - lets hope the other browsers follow suit soon
E-Ink have announced the developers kit for what looks like the fastest E-Ink type display device currently available
It is quite easy for a developer to spend a considerable amount of time on code which is intended for future use, but is then never required (could be for one of many reasons). Sometimes you just want to get the product out the door!
Everyone has their own Internet - shape it how you want - you already have!
Fennec Alpha 1
Not willing to let Webkit, Opera and NetFront take the whole mobile market, Mozilla have been working on Fennec. Only for N800/N810 at the moment - but plenty more soon!
15 world class developers and designers give their thought on the future of CSS - very interesting, and thanks to Elliot Jay Stocks
for the mention of Conditional-CSS
Firefox 3.1 beta 1
Quick work from the Firefox team on the turn around for 3.1b1 - lots of exciting new features such as the geolocation API and video, audio tag support. Nice!
Mozilla and Ajaxian are announcing a partnership to create developer tools for the open web - Design
Smashing Magazine has a fantastic collection of film posters for your to peruse - the amount of effort that must have gone into making some of these posters is staggering
If you ever need to convince someone that information design is needed, show them this - superb work
If you think you are going to get to where you want to be (rich and famous for most people) by just ticking along as normal - think again. Put the effort in (work damn hard basically!) and you will succeed
Take these seven ingredients, stick them into a large company and give a good shake - the result? Good corporate design
Time to SMIL
Given the general lack of support for SMIL in browsers (although Webkit and Opera are doing nicely at the moment) it is surprising how widespread its use is (multimedia, phones etc). This is the new 3.0 specification from the W3C
Congratulations and thank you to the Opera team, who have given us Opera 9.6 today. Nice tidy up of the 9.x series this, and now looking forward to seeing what Merlin will bring
When you are busy "adding value" to your product what are your reasons for doing so? Are you actually doing something which will benefit your users or just adding crud?
There is nothing quite like looking at a data chunk when is beautifully presented and 100% clear. This is a great blog with excellent data visualisation content
No smile for Firefox 3.1
Perhaps not too suprising, SMIL will not be included in Firefox 3.1 - so Opera and Webkit are the only two supporting SVG animation at the moment
Webkit inspector update
As I pointd out recently the web inspector has had a lot of work done on it recently - and they are now releasing it. Very smooth indeed!
