We live in a world where the least web standards compliant browser is not IE but Safari

Given that it's Mac's default browser it probably won't die but it's seriously has become the anchor that weighs down what we can do with web pages.
Chrome · Opera · Firefox · Edge · Safari. Upcoming. Current, 52 492, 48 461, 14 460, 9.1 370. Older, 51 492, 37 489, 47 456, 13 433, 9.0 360. 50 489, 30 479, 46 456, 12 377, 8.0 354. 45 482, 12.10 309, 45 456, Internet Explorer. 40 456, 40 429, 11 312. 30 394, 35 397, 10 265. 30 378, 9 113 ...

Fresh update to PhpStorm provides something that might prove to be game changing for me.

It makes it a lot easier to include PHP_CodeSniffer and Drupal's custom ruleset that helps you passively scan your code for any code / formatting errors.

For me, this has been too much of a hassle to include in my daily process. The frustration has been great though, as PHPStorm's basic code scanning tool assumes that the code is PHP Standard compliant, which Drupal deviates from considerably.

Now I can have this tool ensuring the quality of my code without the frustration.

It is absolutely thrilling to see this feature land for Drupal 8.2. Really exciting to see the rate of progress we're making post 8.0.0 release.

I think this feature might steal the spotlight from all of the other great improvements that are also landing in 8.2. The foundation of the content moderation features, and vast improvements to the migration system are also landing.

What's better, there appears to be a lot of opportunities for people who want to help improve the contextual side panel that drives this functionality. Check out the organizational issue here:

Over the weekend, Drupal 8.2 beta was released. One of the reasons why I'm so excited about this release is that it ships with "more outside-in". In an "outside-in experience", you can click anything on the page, edit its configuration in place without having to navigate to the administration ...

gotcha, yet another case where Drupal essentially has feature parity but doesn't provide a good enough user experience to manage it.

#TIL  there is a time tracking plugin for +PhpStorm 
If you want to take better control of your tasks and projects and measure the time you spend developing, check out the Time Tracking Plugin which was added to PhpStorm 2016.1 earlier this year. The Time Tracking plugin automatically tracks the time you spend on each project based on your ...

Started to combine this time tracking and https://plugins.jetbrains.com/plugin/2190 which allows me now to attach the tracked time to a Jira ticket

What if No Man's Sky is phase 1 of building a really good game. Like in order to tell a saga in space. You first need to make space.
There isn't much rewarding gameplay to complement an amazing tech engine.

I just got a survey for Google Plus, I've been using the site since it launched and this is honestly the first time I've seen a survey. It just asked me what I use the site for and how satisfied I was with it.

To be clear I love using Google+. Even though very few people I know use it, I still find relative content here on a daily basis. I kind of wish it was as smart as Google Now is when it comes to curating a list of things it thinks I would be interested in. But it still does a good job.

I probably would be using Collections more if communities didn't take most of attention on this site. I love running the Drupal community here. It would be great of I could get my community a permalink to legitimize it on the site. Kind of like Reddit in that regard. Something like http://plus.google.com/c/+Drupal would be awesome.

I love the post types here, in that they have large, rich images and the card style naturally flows well for desktop, mobile, and tablet. They've got a lot of stuff figured out here for how to make a great social website for knowledge browsers and collectors. They really should keep this around
