Every Thursday is Tech Thursday where we share a random assortment of technical links we found and liked.
- Peter Gasston has a nice comparison of CSS gradient syntax across browsers in two parts
. Works well with Mozilla's official specs for gradients in Firefox 3.6.
- A startup owner told Craigslist about their mashup using Yahoo Pipes which promptly got Craigslist to ban Yahoo Pipes. Bit extreme, isn't it? For now, YQL still works with Craigslist.
- Google analytics goes asynchronous which is great for the performance of web sites on the web. This might be related to their announcement to factor in performance as a search result ranking factor.
- 24 ways is a great advent calendar with development tips. Remy Sharp's introduction to local storage is a very good start.
- flxhr is a cross domain XHR script using Flash to seamlessly work around the security settings of XHR.
- Vanilla is a free, standards compliant forum software.
- Hexxeh built a USB version of the upcoming Chromium OS.
- Choosy is a tool to define which link should be opened in which browser. Great for use in offices where you have "IE only" products (which have to die).
- Haystack is a modular search for Django.
- Waze is a crowdsourced map and traffic information app. I remember seeing something similar in the open hack day in India.
- The evolution of web design is a nice article showing us where we've come since we used spacer GIFs.
- Themeleon allows you to easily style your Twitter page. Remember, URLs in background images are not clickable and I will not type them in.
- Demystifying jQuery live() explains how jQuery now implements Event Delegation.
