Some interesting stuff I’ve been reading lately. Don’t forget, I’m available for part-time accessibility / web standards consultancy to help any organisation that isn’t making the world worse (and better rates for orgs that are actively trying to make the world better).

  • Safari releases are development hell – “We make the browser-based game creation app Construct … I wanted to share our experience so customers, developers, regulators, and Apple themselves can see what we go through with what is supposed to be a routine Safari release.”
  • Modern Font Stacks – “System font stack CSS organized by typeface classification for every modern OS. The fastest fonts available. No downloading, no layout shifts, no flashes — just instant renders.”
  • The Most Dangerous Codec in the World: Finding and Exploiting Vulnerabilities in H.264 Decoders – head-hurtingly detailed PDF.
  • People do use Add to Home Screen – Mozilla did some user testing. “four of ten people in a user test – what does that tell us? It tells us that it’s something that at least some regular people do and that it’s not a hidden power user feature”.
  • The Automation Charade The rise of the robots has been greatly exaggerated. Whose interests does that serve?
  • AI and the American Smile – How AI misrepresents culture through a facial expression
  • Floor796 “is an ever-expanding animation scene showing the life of the 796th floor of the huge space station! The goal of the project is to create as huge animation as possible, with many references to movies, games, anime and memes”. Drag around and click to find out more.
