Browsers get better. At least Chrome does.
Hardware video support brings efficient decoding to plugins as well as HTML5 video. Flash users should switch from the old style Video to the StageVideo object.

Everyone must properly adopt https, not just advertisers
In the wake of Edward Snowden's revelations, data is increasingly encrypted both in transit and at rest. On the web, HTTPS – the colloquial term for HTTP traffic encrypted with the TLS protocol – adoption has grown significantly, and there is increasing consensus that HTTPS is critical for a ...

Expensive mediocre food. Lovely, attentive service but really slow. Nice atmosphere. But there's no excuse for bad Mexican food in this town.

Food wasn't great for the price point. Servers are nice, but for the price point you shouldn't have to bus your own table. Plus i saw one of the kitchen staff pick his nose which is unsanitary.

A-mazing. Really great food, well balanced. Menu changes daily. I recommend letting their knowledgeable staff plan your meal. Nice ambiance. Reasonable price point for the meal. Perfect for a post-SFJAZZ meal.
