hub: my rambling response.
  1. Thanks for that url
  2. Unfortunately, web developers have always had to "target" browsers, because they all render differently and they get paid to create content that "always" looks a specific way. Standards are good, but browsers are only begining to implement them correctly. For example, I have a relatively simple page that verifies as XHTML and CSS using the W3C validators, guess what, the page renders differently in Opera, Konq, Mozilla, IE w32, IE mac and Netscape 4.x. I'll need to make changes to that simple page to "target" browsers, maybe changes that will break its W3C valid'ness. Anyhow, my hope is that Safari will remain close enough to Konq. so that they will render equivalently, as Gecko has done across platforms.
  3. I wonder what MS's response will be if they do replace IE. Maybe Apple is planning ahead with "keynote" and the possible lack of Office X in the future.

Lots to like about Safari
and lots of questions.

  • Why didn't Apple use Gecko?
  • Does this mean yet another browser for web developers to target or will Konqueror's khtml render equivalently?
  • Will it be the default browser for OS X?

Another ITlab'er is leaving for a job at Digital Domain. The interview process going to be soooo much fun.

Oh well...
Anyone interested in a fun, Open Source friendly job, in the beautiful city of Charleston, please drop me an email.

Starting a push at work to remove NS 4.x as the "standard" browser. May it rest in peace.

Saw AOTC on IMAX yesterday. You could see lots of pixelation on some scenes, but overall the transfer was good. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it was different edit that the theatrical release.

What changed.

  • Redundant scenes, removed.
  • Several cheesy Anakin/Padmé scenes, removed or edited!(thank god).
  • Even a few additions to the battle sections.
