new week, new articles. Be prepared for a bunch of very interesting blog posts in this weeks reading list.
If you want to give me some support, I'd be happy if you vote for me here.

- Firefox stable (v27) now has the CSS property
all: unsetincluded which basically unsets all default values by the browsers stylesheet.
