How many people use Google Chrome DevTools as their primary editor?

It seems there should be a community formed around it, like some go-to place to talk about DevTools, a forum specifically. Especially better if it is frequented by the chrome developers working on it.

I'm sure people would love to hear how you can extend devtools with plugins and themes and what is available out there.

+Paul Irish could you kick off something, please?

Contemplating an idea: The ability to choose your preferred opensource license for libraries and/or documentation. That would be pretty cool.

If someone wanted to fork a library as GPL, they would be able to, etc. Hmmmm...

Here's a #CSS style I use to match #superscript & #subscript tags with the #photoshop algorithm, so that designs are a bit closer to the expectations (for generic fonts, got another photoshop sup style for Myriad Pro if you want it)

http://codepen.io/anon/pen/gJsLK

Trying to match photoshop typography with the HTML/CSS world or vice versa is always a pain, but at least this makes superscript work the same.

Additionally the styled superscript/subscript won't affect the height of the whole line, but rather is positioned relatively from the rest of the text baseline as it ought to be.

EDIT: Added subscript as well and hashtags.

Really surprising so many huge entities engage in anti-branding by using door slammers.

Its not too far off from the familiar practice of media outlets asking for you to subscribe before you can read more articles.
 
No. Really.

Relevant to fellow Google Chrome extension devs

Did you know that Chrome has an internal API for favicons?

For example, getting a 2x DPI favicon at 16px from the ArsTechnica site:
chrome://favicon/size/16@2x/http://arstechnica.com/

The API is structured as follows:
'chrome://' + iconType + '/size/' + iconSize + '@'+ pixelRatio + 'x/' + url;
Where:
iconType is 'favicon' or 'touch-icon',
iconSize is the resolution in pixels,
pixelRatio is pretty much just window.devicePixelRatio,
url which site to grab the favicon from.

Also, Chrome uses the favicons API together with -webkit-image-set, which is the CSS version of srccset for use in background images.

Your website may not look as dean and modem as you might think.

WebKit will round letter-spacing values to the nearest pixel, which means your design likely has keming issues and is one dick away from disaster.

Hypothesis: The longer the user interacts and/or stares at an image, the more they would prefer a higher quality version.


So, the longer an image is visible in the viewport of a site (along with other factors such as cursor attention and other human factors) the more you should try to improve the quality of the image post initial load IMHO. I had been thinking about to achieve this, it should be possible using canvas and drawing decoded delta frame updates on top over time to keep sharpening and enhancing the quality.

I'm somewhat unsure exactly what would be the best algorithm suitable for this. You could initially load a very lower quality JPEG and then do extra AJAX requests for delta frame payloads.

The lowest quality image could be inlined into the first HTML request of a page (for the time-to-glass phase) and then keep downloading further updates based on factors (device capabilities, network, etc) and user interaction (or non-interaction even if they are looking at the same location for a while).


Additionally this would be pretty awesome with responsive design.

+Margaret Leber Hmmm, that's a point I have always kept in mind, but I think the way it is done with the SL viewer and server is quite a rough implementation of what's a really good idea.

Their insistence on JP2K (great ability to progressively decode decent images but decoding has a ridiculous hit on CPU performance), choices in network protocols (compared to the new verse protocol: http://youtu.be/IJm-Inp9kTI ), fudged texture priorities (they are awful at fudging things, see Land Impact), unnecessarily XOR'ing cached images and other decisions all add up to a really suboptimal implementation.

On a side note, I am actually really amazed at the picture in this post and what it means in the culture of today compared to just ten years ago. (The article itself sugar coating this fact even further)


Looks like the visual idea of a person sitting infront of a computer has almost fully removed itself from the old stereotype of a "loser with no life" and turned 180 degrees towards the famous "thinker pose" - a human who is fully using their brain thinking power.

Not to mention the children next to her showing that it is acceptable and even social.


Anyone else notice this?


The future is really a lot closer than we think it is.
