  1. The Pain of Duplicate Scripts

    Duplicate scripts on a page means multiple downloads (for Firefox) and a performance hit. You can help this by following Facebooks lead and opting out of an async load if the script element is already in place with if (d.getElementById(id)) {return;}

  2. Adobe Edge Reflow | Edge Tools & Services | Adobe & HTML

    Leave a Comment

    Adobe are releasing their next suite of products and some of the focus is on responsive design. The Reflow tool kind of reminds me of an existing grid tool that allows you to set responsive layouts, however this is a little more hi-fidelity. Since the release of Adobe Shadow I’ve started to admire the Adobe stuff again, but I am still wary that tools like reflow will produce superfluous code which outweigh it’s usefulness.

  3. CSS-Only Sticky Headers for Tables, Using ‘position: sticky’

    Leave a Comment

    What’s neat about this is that you get the effect of the static table headers by introducing a few lines of css. No jQuery, no weird css that breaks the semantic intent of the content, and no javascript handlers built off scroll events. It’s not ready for prime time just yet, but it’s worth keeping in mind as you take on new projects.
