Yesterday night I invented two new words (while trying to make our old Quake2 demo work in Firefox after fixing some Chrome storage permission issues):

"Zombie API": A deprecated API that is in the process of being removed from all browsers, but still kept halfway alive by a polyfill (such as +Eric Bidelman 's nice File System API polyfill).

"Javascript Nazi": People who use "=== true", so if GWT somehow puts {create: new Boolean(true)} in your generated code, that is not "accidentally" interpreted as true (Maybe I can't really complain in this specific case because in the twisted world of Javascript "!!(new Boolean(false))" is true, too).

Of course after addressing all the FS stuff, the code sill does not work in FF for some reason, but that's a different story... :-/
