I didn't expect my list to grow so well over the first four weeks so I am a little bit overwhelmed by the response from you. Thank you so much for your support – keep it coming and share the love to my tiny newsletter with your friends.
Last week not much happened – that way I turned into the announced 'regular' every other week mode. Well, I'd say it really depends how much happened in the web industry. If there is much to tell, I keep you posted, if there's nothing or not enough to tell, you won't get a message. In that case, enjoy the sunny days (I hope it is as here) and relax a little bit.
- It is Responsive Webdesign when it works everywhere – even on Google Glass! A little but nice article about Glass optimization.
- MinifiedJS claims to be a library only 4kb big with the full power of jQuery and browser support. This sounds great, maybe you should give it a try in your next project?
- Jamie Mason created a comparison table on image optimization tools and its results. Quite interesting numbers and results you should have a look at.
- Bower 1.0 is out.
- IE11 will get many new features in its DevTools. The preview looks pretty neat and there will be quite some really cool features.
- GruntHub lets you manage several grunt.js projects in parallel. This is cool!
- Grunt Express lets you start an Express server including LiveReload etc. all in one.
- Luke wrote a summary to Page Speed is only the beginning.
- Chris Coyier researched flexbox for a performance lack. Fortunately Paul Irish jumped in with some interesting feedback.
- Oh man, did you know that using Data-URIs on mobile could slow down your page massively? Better re-think this workflow. Guesses are that it's the base64 encoding which would make pretty much sense. Anyway, consider using files / sprites again to speed up your site on mobile devices.
- Well, you know about the inconsistencies of CSS implementations in the different browsers, right? Here's another: background-size.
All the best and rock on!
