Flock

A new kid on the browser block, Flock claims to be a browser which does what Web2.0 is all about: sharing. And there is even better news for developers; Flock is based on Mozilla technologies, which means we won’t have to optimize websites for yet another browser.

Now if you say, “Hey, that ain’t all that new!” – you are right. While the concept of sharing through your webbrowser is not new – I also wrote about Allpeers a while back, and Allpeers is the ex-Skype people’s new project (after they sold Skype to eBay) – I reviewed Allpeer’s website today and it still remains a “coming soon” whereas Flock is here now.

A shift in focus

While I thought optimizing for another browser is out of date since they all pretty much follow the same models, I noticed that especially with complexity of applications on the rise in regard to XHTML, JavaScript code and CSS (hint: Ajax) I found myself optimizing for Internet Explorer 6 a lot more than I do for its competition.

The competition which is primarily is Firefox on Windows and Linux/Unix, and Safari when you are on Mac OS X. Even the Camino browser bears less issues as IE6 lately. But my equation also totally neglects Opera.

Weirdness!

CSS Tweak

Andy Peatling’s CSS Tweak is a webbased software that will take in any CSS file and optimize its styles by grouping them and by putting them in shorthand.

It will also remove comments and whitespace for maximum compression and small filesize, if requested to do so.

Very cool, Andy.
