Reading List


As you probably know, Google announced Blink, the new rendering engine that will power Opera and Chrome, forked from WebKit (which itself was forked from KHTML).

And RIP Cynthia Waddell, a tireless lawyer and campaigner for disability rights on the web, and co-author of the first book I helped develop.

Buy "Calling For The Moon", my debut album of songs I wrote while living in Thailand, India, Turkey. (Only £2, on Bandcamp.)

Giggled at your auto-update comment.

To be honest, I’d prefer Opera to make auto-updates optional after the switch myself, but if the Chromium source doesn’t allow for an easy way to manually update, then so be it.

And, just out of curiosity: Will Opera be using Native Client now that it’s changing to Chromium? The thought is a little worrisome to me, for some of the arguments Mozilla devs post against NC.

I firmly support auto-updates; it keeps web browser security patched and up-to-date.

I don’t know whether we’ll turn on Native Client (there are various flags we can turn on or off). I’m not a fan.
