W3Schools

It is funny how W3school's Firefox marketshare is hailed, yet no one mentions that the site's content itself is highly IE centric (W3 my arse, IE-only apis and samples everywhere).

One of the most evil sites on earth. I've heard "but w3schools says blabla" as an excuse too often.

Go grow some hair, read specs, and everyone implement them in different ways because specification authors mistake beer for brain matter. And arguing that security is not their responsibility.

A SVG/XBL Paint App Demo

A SVG/XBL Paint App Demo

I rewrote it since I last blogged about it, though the code is still messy. On top of moving/resizing, you can now change colors/borders as well as add new boxes/triangles. Just click on the "toolbar" and draw a new one in the drawing area.

I also started a "layer" like area that shows a thumbnail for each shape in the drawing area.

Obviously requires a Mozilla/Firefox trunk build with SVG enabled via preferences.

A quick SVG rant:

Every other W3C spec pretty much uses "length" to get, well, the length of a list. Natrually, SVG uses "numberOfItems" for SVGPointList.

Fireblue? Bluefox?

Bah, IBM now "officially" supports Firefox internally.

Guess who gets to fix all our crappy intranet sites? Not the clueless outsourced callcenter people, that is for sure.

Upgrade Your Friends!

If you got any friends/family/etc to switch to a Mozilla browser, please get them upgraded to 1.7.8/1.0.4. Don't listen to the fanboi sites (slashdot talks of not having to upgrade, wtf?), the security issues are highly critical.
