somewhere to talk about random ideas and projects like everyone else



CSS3 Sideways Google 08 December 2009

I was surprised to find that one of the main referrers to my site recently has been Twitter. Looking into it, it seems to all be for my quickly hacked together CSS3 Sideways Google. Which uses the new CSS3 transforms supported by Webkit and Gecko (Firefox, Chrome and Safari) as well as the freaky DirectX stuff Microsoft has (Only major browser that isn’t supported is Opera, who is lagging a bit).

And in the spirit of CSS3 Sideways Google, I present CSS3 elgooG

It also appears that the awesome website was built entirely off of the original CSS3 Sideways Google and actually got 1500 diggs :)

Safari 4 Beta 02 March 2009

So I just tried Safari 4 Beta, and I’m quite impressed, but it’s strange that it’s almost exactly like Chrome. It’s like Chrome’s not only based on Webkit, but Webkit is based on chrome. Sorta like Vista = OS X, Gadgets/Widgets, Search/Spotlight stuff. I’m somewhat annoyed about not being to close tabs with middle click, and how, unlike Firefox+TabKit, it only has that small possible tab space. Especially since I have a dysfunctional mental garbage-collection system, so I easily have >20 tabs at a time.

Porting Ajax Animator to Titanium 17 December 2008

So the issue with Adobe AIR, is that there’s no SVG support, but I have a hunch that this might support SVG, as it’s not Adobe’s fork of Webkit, but hopefully the real one :)

It has tons of awesome components like WebKit, Chromium (hope it doesn’t have that rotate bug…), Gears, GTK+, jQuery, Appcelerator SDK, NSIS, Ruby.

But this will hopefully satisfy those wishes for a Desktop version.
