The Mojave Experiment… It Doesn’t Really Suck That Much

For those that haven’t switched to a Mac yet here are some stats that might wow you from the Mojave Experiment website:

  • Vista is 60% less likely to get infected by Malware than SP2… Mac is about 0% likely
  • Windows Vista is compatible with 200 Security programs… I don’t need a single one… I have a mac
  • 37% of vista users say they are “somewhat likely” to recommend it to others
  • 46% of current Windows users said they are somewhat satisfied with Vista

For some reason I’m not really itching to give Vista another look.

Being Kind to Widows and Orphans

No, this is not one of those charity posts.
It’s all about my favourite plugin. Imagine a plugin that could improve
the typography of your page with no complicated setup. Controlling type
online can at times be difficult. However, things have just gotten a
whole lot easier with the release of the Typogrify plugin.

POSH – Plain Old Semantic HTML

A nice new acronym for a basic concept that should be deeply ingrained into every webdeveloper/frontend developer is making the rounds. POSH – Plain Old Semantic HTML.

To start writing semantic markup, you need to:

  • Validate your HTML
  • Stop using tables for layout
  • Use semantic elements and attributes for their intended purpose
  • Use semantic class names and id values
  • Use as little HTML as will get the job done

CSS Buttons: Rediscovering the Button Element

Kevin Hale posted a solution to creating CSS buttons that look anyway you want using only CSS that work across all browsers. Nice!  (via Bjorkoy.com’s upgrade of Blueprint)

EDIT: Related to this is Alex Griffioen’s How to make sexy buttons with CSS that uses the sliding doors technique.
