I was curious to see what Google Wave's support for IE would be like being that they claim Wave is an HTML 5 application. When I fired it up in IE 6, 7, and 8 I got this lovely screen (see image). This was a shocker! Apparently Google has developed a plug-in for IE called Chrome Frame that actually runs Google Chrome inside of IE. There had been some effort a couple years ago towards implementing something similar to this with Mozilla/Gecko (http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/mozilla.htm), but the work apparently got dropped.
Last weekend I was excited to get an invite to try the early preview of Google's new and highly anticipated product: Google Wave.
My initial reaction: "meh".
There’s been a lot of talk lately about "Semantic HTML", or in other words, trying to use descriptive code to markup your content with. Semantic HTML is crucial for search engine optimization since it helps web crawling bots to understand your content.
There are a few HTML tags still in the W3C recommendation status that are pretty useless and should probably be depreciated, but there are others that you probably haven’t heard of that could actually be quite useful.
So the next time you’re building a webpage and you go to type <div> or <span>, stop and consider using one of these!
Hello world! I have decided to join the blog universe. I have never really considered myself a writer, but lately I have found myself with things I want to say to the world, and sometimes to myself, because I can't always remember experiences I have had, and sometimes they are useful to share. My website was in need of a refresh so I thought I would take the opportunity to add a blog to it.
