what a week, heh? If you’re a sysadmin I hope you got at least some sleep in the past days. OpenSSL contained a serious bug which was leaked on tuesday, right when the official support for Windows XP (and therefore IE <=8) ended. But also as a user you need to be strong now—and you’ll likely need to reset all your passwords everywhere soon. But first you need to manually check if the site has already fixed the bug before you change your password. If not, you need to avoid the site until they fixed the security leak.
However, I catched up with the internet once again and collected a series of links for you all around front-end development:
