    AJAX Web Apps In iOS 6 Are Sort Of Broken

    I noticed some odd behavior in mobile Safari on iOS 6, and while I thought it to be just a minor quibble on my part, it turns out that it’s actually something of a notable bug, now affecting web developers targeting the platform.

    Did Apple Just Quietly End Development Of Safari For Windows?

    Safari 6 brings improved performance and many new features to OS X, including offline reading lists, a unified search field and support for Do Not Track.

But it is bad for advertisers who rely on browser… Read More

    Google Clarifies Their H.264 Stance, Hands Keys Of Web Video's Future Back To Flash

    Earlier this week, Google wrote a very short post on their relatively small Chromium blog to announce a big change: they were dropping support for the H.264 codec in Chrome.
