Google Chrome

I guess you all have downloaded Chrome already. If not, what are you waiting for? I’d like to congratulate my friends who have been working so hard on this. Congratulations Glen and Ojan. Also, I’d like to add that Chrome is totally awesome, and I’m not saying that because I work at Google. I’m saying ...

Gmail and WebKit. Feel the speed!

If you haven’t tried the new Gmail with a recent nightly WebKit (you need build 523 or later due to one blocking bug in earlier builds) I dare you to try it. With nightly WebKits it takes about 200ms to go from the Inbox to a thread. Anything that takes less than 300ms is perceived ...

Love WebKit, Hate Safari

I love the speed and features of WebKit but I hate the UI of Safari. Maybe I can get over the clumsy UI in time?

6 Months at Google

Maybe my little April fools joke was a bit too obvious. Me leaving Google for Microsoft? That would never happen. I don’t think anyone ever left Google for Microsoft and there is a reason why. Google is just awesome. At Google I got to work with the smartest people and they have all of the ...

After installing and ...

There has been some mumbling about accessibiliy and javascript for quite some time now and today I read the following at the DOM Scripting Task Force blog: It’s also all but impossible for some applications, such as Google Maps. In fact, after some preliminary testing our own Derek Featherstone was so dismayed by the state ...

MSE – Microsoft Script Editor

Microsoft Script Editor is probably one of the lesser known tools that can really make a difference when it comes to developing web applications. MSE is a debugger, much like Visual Studio and it comes bundled with Microsoft Office. It should not be mistaken for Microsoft Script Debugger which is a piece of crap compared ...

My Daily Startup

Since Foo did it and to prevent the rumours of my death to spread any further I’m gonna do the same thing. These are the programs I usually launch when I start one of my computers: Trillian Pro – sometimes it is nice to pay a little Dear Park alpha or Firefox depending on what ...

Visual C# Express Sucks

Visual C# Express 2005 Express Edition Beta 2 is actually a quite nice IDE for developing C# applications. It has a lot of features that make navigating and figuring out the framework a breeze. The reason I think it sucks is the following: I had developed an application for a few hours and to be ...
