  • Visualising the DOM for fun

    The Document Object Model, or DOM as it is known better, is usually visualised as a tree. For instance with the Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar or DOM Inspector / Firebug for Firefox. But there are other more fun ways, like Aharef did.

  • Pizza in Europe?

    Lately there has been some news surrounding Google Maps. As a result I’m obliged to sum things up. ThinkLemon style, surely. First, it was called Google Maps (beta), then Local, and now Maps again. Probably because everyone was calling it Maps anyhow. The Google Blog explains more. Second, Maps has expanded to continental Europe. Finally […]

  • Firefox ACID2 compliance on its way

    Now, after Safari, iCab, Konqueror & Opera 9 beta, it’s Firefox’ turn to comply with the ACID2 test. David Baron has built a special development version of Firefox that fixes some rendering issues that kept it from complying before. You can see the screenshot of ACID2 in action on his Flickr account. Now, why is […]

  • Google Earth: Suspected Earth Impact Sites March 2006 update (KML)

    The IFSG released a new database containing all the known suspected earth impact craters. I could not stay behind and updated the collection for Google Earth. Download the March 2006 edition of the SEIS database (200KB KML). So if you happen to discover some craters yourself, now you can check if it’s in the collection […]

  • Extend Firefox Contest Winners

    The grand prize winners of the Extend Firefox competition are in. One of them is the one I use on a daily basis. In fact it’s the biggest reason why I’m using Firefox as my main browser. Props to Chris! 🙂 But IMHO the Web Developer toolbar is only usefull for us web developers (and […]

  • Ask.com Maps & Directions

    The latest addition to the online mapping frenzy comes from none other than ask.com (that search engine that fired its card-bored butler remember?). At map.ask.com you can find maps and directions. A first glance may remind you of that other mapping solution. But … this one is aware of roads in the rest of the […]

  • Google Page Creator (Beta of course)

    Normally I wouldn’t blog about yet another new Google product release. Now would I? 😉 Hey, I’m not the Googleblog you know. But this time they’ve released a product that lets my mother create webpages in no-time, although I doubt if anyone’s waiting for another bridge-site. (Sorry mom. :-)) So what is it? It’s an […]

  • PocketMod, Hipster PDA or Ductster PDA

    The PDA* market is becoming quite competitive it seems. Once a small niche, it looks to be ready for main-stream. There have been no mergers, buy-outs or busts … yet. But hey, it’s still an emerging market. Here’s the short-list: PocketMod: The Free Disposable Personal Organizer: Nice pocket-sized, folding design, but takes a while to […]
