Thinking About Mozilla | Incisive.nu
Mozilla has a new CEO, Brendan Eich. To some he's the person who invented JavaScript — a hero — and to others he's a bigot who donated money to a homophobic organisation. Many people are quite emotional about this appointment. Many emotional tweets and posts have been written about it. In this post <b>Erin Kissane</b>, who works for Mozilla, links to many posts and tweets, but also makes a fantastic point. She writes: <q>The moment we let “open internet” become synonymous with progressive causes—inside or outside Mozilla—its many conservative supporters will be forced into an impossible position.</q> If you've been following the discussion, this is a very good post to read since it eloquently describes many different viewpoints. And if you haven't, you should read this post too, since it is so wonderful and passionate.

iOS WebKit browsers and auto-zooming form controls | 456 Berea Street
It's very easy to prevent iOS from zooming in on form elements once you understand <em>why it zooms in</em>. It zooms in because your font is too small. Once you use a font-size that's big enough (which is 16px or more), this behaviour is gone. Which makes sense, now that you know it.

The many layers of web design ⚒ Nerd
A good website consists of many layers. Front-end developers create and stack these layers in order to make a site work on as many devices as possible. But somehow, visual designers only look at the very last layer. In this post I argue that every layer should be designed by someone who's not visually impaired. And in the comments we conclude that designers and developers really need to start learning from each other.

“Offline First” — Unstoppable Robot Ninja
We always thought that our network connections would get faster every year. And this was true(ish) while we consumed the web from home and from the office. But from the moment we decided we need the internet while we're on the road, this wasn't true anymore: everybody who's travelled on a train in The Netherlands, or everyone who's ever stayed in a hotel with Free Wifi knows that our networks are not something that can be trusted. This knowledge *should* have a huge impact on our designs. Hence this new movement called <em>Offline First</em>. Now we need another movement called <em>Crappy Hardware First</em>, since more and more people start buying and using cheap phones with browsers.

We are still using Tables for Layout - Rik Schennink
Instead of adding shape and color to our content, we force our content into shape and colour, argues <b>Rik Schennink</b>. He thinks that websites will be better if we start with writing the HTML our content needs, and then design that content. And I think I agree with him. Of course it's not all black and white, and design is not just about shaping and colouring content, but I'm sure our websites would be better if we started with HTML instead of a pixel editor.

The HTML5 Document Outline | The Paciello Group BlogThe Paciello Group Blog
I think the HTML5 document outline is brilliant. In theory, you can select any section with its subsections from any page, and paste it into another document, and the outline just works. This is so much better than the h1-h6 that older versions of HTML had to offer. Unfortunately, no browsers really support the new sectioning elements. The advice is, thus, to use the new sectioning elements *together with* the old H1-H6 elements. Yes, it will break in current browsers once you copy a section into some other document, but it will be magically fixed once they fix it. So use both.

An often heard complaint about the web is that it doesn't feel as snappy as native apps.
