HOWTO: Boot your Raspberry Pi into a fullscreen browser kiosk | Wired Watershed
"...we thought it’d be useful to document what we achieved: automatically running Chromium, full-screen, with a single kiosk-mode web-page." Yep, that will be useful, I'm sure.

Sauce Labs: Cloudified Browser Testing
Test in multiple browsers, potentially automated, over the net. Latency might be an issue, but worth knowing about, given how much I hate setting up browser test rigs.

Browser as a weapon in a guerilla war – Techbelly
"It’s a bit like augmented reality, a layer inserted between what leaves the server and what hits your brain." Yes. Also: see Ben's comment about the browser as weapon.

july 2009 by infovore [ Unity and the Future of Browser-Based Games ]
"If 2009 is going to see the emergence of high-quality browser-based games, then 2009 is going to be the year of Unity. It has: lots of powerful features; iPhone support; Wii publishing; a developing community; quality developers using it; and an upcoming upcoming PC version. In short, it is about to make a major splash. I feel compelled to jump in with it — the indie license is cheaper than the Flash IDE."

GameSetWatch - Exploring Online Worlds: The Oddness Of Trukz
"Though few gamers might be interested in long haul trucking, there is nothing wrong with concentrating on a small group of gamers and offering them the best experience they can get within their limited requirements. In fact, the more MMO developers who realize this—that a small group of loyal players is better than a huge group of disinterested players—the better, honestly." Very true - a nice conclusion to Matthew Kumar's round-up of a somewhat niche - but interesting sounding - browser MMO.

Google Chrome why? «
"The current browsers, including Firefox, just can’t cut it. JavaScript isn’t fast enough (thereby limiting the UX), browsers are single threaded and they aren’t stable enough. If Google want to challenge Microsoft (or anyone else for that matter) in the desktop space they needed a better platform... Google’s solution is I think much neater - build an open source browser that supports multithreading, fast JavaScript execution and stuff Google Gears into the back end so it works offline." Now that's a good explanation.

Aza’s Thoughts » Firefox Mobile Concept Video
Some really nice ideas in here, that I need to think about more: notably, the use of edges (or are they seams?) to give control over the page in the middle, and context for it related to other pages. It'll be interesting to see it on real devices, now.

Fluid - Free Site Specific Browser for Mac OS X Leopard
"Fluid gives any webapp a home on your Mac OS X desktop complete with Dock icon, standard menu bar, and logical separation from your other web browsing activity." A nice way to build site-specific browsers; shame it's Leopard-only...

Surfin’ Safari - Blog Archive » The FOUC Problem
It is poor coding to access style/layout information repeatedly during the loading cycle of a page, because in order for the engine to supply you with an answer, it has to ensure that its layout and style are up to date.
