Got to keep up with the web. Here is a collection of pages I've bookmarked.
Should you sell hosting?
I think this is a very important question for freelance web-designers/developers - good tips from Freelance Switch
Firefox 3 does the Mac OSX
Good to see the Firefox developers realising that Firefox 2 on the Mac had a very poor interface, and fixing it in Firefox 3
Opera throws the legal dice at Microsoft
Force MS to unbundle IE from Windows and/or ship with other browsers by default - you might as well fight big. One thing though, how do we measure the requirement to "support web-standards" given that not one single browser supprts "standards" 100%?
Questions about AJAX
No answers - just questions. "How do we fix the web" from Douglas Crockford gets my vote
Internationalisation is never particularly easy (although this looks like a nice method). Throw pluralisation in as well and you have a real mess
Great article from Opera about why web standards are needed and why we should all follow them (including the browser makers)
SVG speed in Mozilla
Good to see the Mozilla people looking at this since the current implementation is super slow at rendering. SVG in Firefox 3 pre-beta is nice and snappy
Thermo looks like a great application for designers (and for making front-end developers redundant...)
Molly askes Bill the big questions about IE8
With Microsoft being Mum on the subject at the moment there is quite the storm brewing (also in the comments, I do love how people keep asking for full
css3 support in IE8... sigh...)
Yahoo are going to train up teams of elite front end developers. Sounds interesting. Sounds very interesting...
It will be named IE8
The MSIE team takes the Micheal... What have you got if you cannot laugh at yourself - nice one guys
The future of reading
Someone needs to step up to the plate and get the UI for the digital generation of readers in hand (any time you are ready...)
IE7 at 1 year
The IE blog is always an interesting place: 1. It shows why blog comments can be a bad idea and 2. It shows that a shockingly large number of "web-designers" are in primary school...
Webkit is opening up
Already open source, but webkit is opening the doors to everyone now - great to see
HTML 5 preview
while HTML5 looks interesting, I am quite unconvinced about the direction it is taking with header, nav, article etc tags
