Jake’s blow-by-blow account of uncovering a serious browser vulnerability is fascinating. But if you don’t care for the technical details, skip ahead to to how different browser makers handled the issue—it’s very enlightening. (And if you do care for the technical details, make sure you click on the link to the PDF version of this post.)

Ana goes into exhaustive detail on all the differences in the shadow DOM and styling of
input type="range" across browsers.
I’m totally fine with browsers providing different styling for complex UI elements like this, but I wish they’d at least provide a consistent internal structure and therefore a consistent way of over-riding the default styles. Maybe then people wouldn’t be so quick to abandon native elements like this in favour building their own UI components from scratch—the kind of over-engineering that inevitably ends up being under-engineered.

A look at the feedback needed for a slider control that feels “right”.
You can get most of the behavioural (though not styling) suggestions in HTML by doing this:
<form> <input type="range" min="0" max="100" value="50" onchange="amount.value=this.value" onmousemove="amount.value=this.value"> <output name="amount">50</output> </form>

You’re supposed to be able to create two-handled sliders with
input type="range" but the browser support isn’t there yet. In the meantime, Lea has created a nice lightweight polyfill.

At least one of these will probably drive you crazy.

A day devoted to exploring unusual places all over the world. I couldn’t find anything for Brighton but it looks like there will be some stuff happening in London.

In an attempt to “optimise” performance, T-Mobile and Orange are actually breaking jQuery.

The premise of this work is simple: I meet two or more people on the street who are strangers to each other, and to me. I ask them if they will pose for a photograph together with the stipulation that they must touch each other in some manner. Frequently, I instruct or coach the subjects how to touch. Just as often, I let their tentative physical exploration play out before my camera with no interference.

There is something utterly hypnotic and disturbing about these three-frame looping animations.

Kind of disturbing, kind of funny.

Possible ideas for IE's icon for RSS feeds. I like number five.
