So I guess it’s simply the time of year. Many big releases today… software, APIs, and more! First, the biggest. IE8 has been released in initial beta. The release was also included a general overview of IE8′s new features and fixes. It’s actually quite a lot of information to absorb all at once. I’ve skimmed [...]

My IE8 happiness was so yesterday. Now let’s tear all these browsers apart, IE8 included, with the Acid3 test!

So I have been working on a small piece of navigation at work. Tabs, to be exact. Multiple items, but no more than 5 at a time. Variable length titles (including some rather long). As it is a list of links, of course, I wanted to use an unordered list. It all made perfect semantic [...]
