What is the impact of HTML5 on Adobe?

January 22, 2010

With the recent announcements that YouTube and Vimeo are both releasing HTML5-based video players, one has to wonder about the impact of those moves on Adobe. Adobe's Flash had been (and is) THE standard for delivering multimedia content over the web, capturing something like 99% of internet users. HTML5 allows many Flash-like animations/videos/experiences without the […]

The new kid

December 9, 2009

Google Chrome for Mac has finally been released (in beta, but who's complaining?) and I've been testing it as my primary browser. It's already my top choice on Windows (this development making it all the more sweeter) and I have to say - once you use a combined address/search bar, there's absolutely no going back. […]

Progress in Safari 4 (update)

June 8, 2009

And while we're comparing Safari 4 to its beta, I had also noticed various progress bars that were available in the beta. The final release has gone with none of them, choosing instead a more radically visible indicator: My immediate reaction is that I preferred the subtlety of the beta indicator (eventually preferring it to […]

Update: Safari 4 still breaks bookmarklets

June 8, 2009

When the Safari 4 beta came out, I observed that having more than one tab open would break any resize bookmarklets. I can confirm that this is still the case in the stable release of Safari 4. Cody Robbins commented on my original post and noted that the problem has been filed as a WebKit […]

WordPress 2.8 beta 2 + TinyMCE 3.2.4 + Safari 4 beta = :) (finally)

May 25, 2009

WordPress 2.7 was released in December 2008 and represented a milestone in the software's development, incorporating a number of major changes in particular to the back end. One of the most visible was the inclusion of the latest TinyMCE post editor (version 3.2). Unfrotunately, TinyMCE 3.2 doesn't play nicely with the Safari 4 beta. Specifically, […]

Progress in Safari 4

March 1, 2009

Update 6/8/09: The release version of Safari 4 went with none of these. One of my favorite Safari features is that the address bar doubles as a progress bar, whereas most browsers place a progress bar at the bottom of the screen, taking up real estate. This is how mobile Safari works on the iPhone […]

Safari 4 breaks bookmarklets?

March 1, 2009

Update 6/8/09: This still happens in the release version of Safari 4. Update 6/13/09: More details available at Sakuzaku. I have been unable to verify if this is a widespread problem or just my luck, but my Java bookmarklets are no longer working in the Safari 4 beta. Bookmarklets are mini-applications that can be run […]

WordPress + Mac = :)

February 5, 2008

I am really happy with my WordPress installation, and I love my Mac, so I was rather disappointed to find that they don't play nicely together in one regard. The TinyMCE editor has a devilish tendency to strip line breaks if accessed in Safari 3+, both in the visual and code views. The prospect of […]
