A ten-part tutorial on CSS Grid from Mozilla.
Make Twitter Great Again:
Fix Twitter is a browser extension to always show “replying to” in replies and threads along with an option to restore the old-school @-mentions.
Lin gives a deep dive into Firefox’s new CSS engine specifically, but this is also an excellent primer on how browsers handle CSS in general: parsing, styling, layout, painting, compositing, and rendering.
I believe that Mozilla can make progress in privacy, but leadership needs to recognize that current advertising practices that enable “free” content are in direct conflict with security, privacy, stability, and performance concerns — and that Firefox is first and foremost a user-agent, not an industry-agent.
This page does a great job of explaining Mozilla’s thinking behind “pinned apps”—an idea that would be great for the whole web, not just Firefox users.
This abuse of the !important declaration in Firefox’s user-agent stylesheet was driving me crazy recently. Roger proposes a CSS patch, but this is really something that needs to be fixed in the browser.
Finally. Hyphenation on the web.
Pretty much the only forms of Western literature that don’t use hyphenation are children’s books and websites. Until now.
More brilliant and useful code from Glenn: copy and paste contact details from one URL into a form on another URL.
A rather vicious evaluation of browser support for the audio element and the audio API. It is divided up into:
- Browsers From Companies That Actually Care About HTML5 Audio
- Browsers From Companies That Hate the Web Enough to Not Support Ogg/Vorbis, but do Have an Audio Tag So They Can Say They Have an Audio Tag (Seriously, Fuck You)
- Browsers That Say They Support HTML5 Audio But Actually Don’t Support HTML5 Audio
A heated discussion around the decision in Firefox 4 to remove the RSS icon from the address bar.
A quick run-through of some of the new HTML5 form features coming in Firefox 4.
Henri Sivonen gives the lowdown on the HTML5 parser that will ship with the next version of Firefox. This is a huge development ...and yet users won't even notice it (by design).
Aza Raskin share's some mockups of ideas for incorporating identity management into the browser.
Thanks to the brilliant Glenn Jones, there is now a Firefox plug-in for Huffduffer. Right-click on a link to an audio file and select "Huffduff it" and you will get the pre-filled Huffduffer form in a pop-up window.
A nice overview of Glenn's XFN Firefox plug-in.
Remy explains how to get Firefox 2 and Camino to recognise HTML5 structural elements.
Okay, I know I said "holy freakin' crap!" the last time I linked to one of Glenn's Social Graph API experiments but now he's gone and created a Firefox plug-in: press alt-i and you can see the social graph for anyone's site. Holy freakin' crap!
A PMOG mission where players learn about the password anti-pattern.
