Google Chrome 31 introduced detailed validation messages for input[type=email].

We had provided a simple validation message for input[type=email] until Google Chrome 30.  It's "Please enter an email address."
Since Google Chrome 31, validation messages for input[type=email] say what's wrong.

<input type="email" value="foo">
===> Please include an '@' in the email address. 'foo' is missing an '@'.
<input type="email" value="foo@">
===> Please enter a part following '@'.'foo@' is incomplete.
<input type="email" value="@example">
===> Please enter a part followed by '@'.'@example' is incomplete.
<input type="email" value="foo @example">
===> A part followed by '@' should not contain the symbol ' '.
<input type="email" value="foo@example,com">
===> A part following '@' should not contain the symbol ','.
<input type="email" value="">
===> '.' is used at a wrong position in ''.

#MozCast Update - We're showing a significant temperature spike for Tuesday (or between Tuesday and Wednesday) - hitting 103 degrees (see Give or take a day, SERPmetrics and are also showing sizable flux.

There are no clear signs in the "top-view" metrics or evidence that SERP features have changed significantly in the past couple of days. A few days back, we saw a decent-sized jump in sites with expanded site-links (which also means they have 7-result SERPs), but that's been stable since the shift.

A few keywords that might hold some clues:

(1) "single family homes for rent"
For the past month, Zillow has held #8-10 of the top 10 spots, but on Wednesday that dropped to just #1-2. There's no clear sign of large-scale diversity changes, but this SERP shifted dramatically.

Interestingly, top movers also included "forsalebyowner" and "property for sales". Both SERPs also have Zillow, so it's unclear whether there was a shake-up in real estate, or if something just changed regarding the Zillow site or its status.

(2) "shopping sites"
On Wednesday, "" came out of nowhere and took the #1 spot, but then fell back out of the top 10 on Thursday. There was a lot of flux in the rest of the top 10 as well.

(3) "restaurant menu"
Two restaurants (Bone's Restaurant and Weber Grill") jumped into the top 2 spots, and have stayed there. Keep in mind that our tracking is de-localized, but this is inherently a local query.

There's been some chatter of a Penguin update. Seeing massive shifts in the top spots is consistent with the original Penguin, but we can only speculate at this point, and this evidence is purely anecdotal. If you've seen similar patterns or have anything to add, please comment.

Handy. Common Patterns in Styleguides, Boilerplates & Pattern Libraries.

I just don’t buy into the whole post-PSD era thing. It's how you use Photoshop that has changed.
