Why I don’t do apps on Facebook

As most people, I guess, I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook. It’s great for staying in touch with people, share funny stories, pics etc; however, it is not the platform I want to use for all kinds of connections with people.

Mobile vs. Social

This article is also available in Czech.

The new Editor for Mozilla Hacks

I’ve always loved blogging, writing about things I’m interested in and then sharing and discussing it with like-minded people!

And what comes with that is every implementation under the sun to offer validation for them, custom display and functionality if they aren’t native in that specific web browser, and much much more. Therefore, during the development phase of HTML5, one of the important things that have been looked into is making forms on the web evolve into what both end users and developers need to make things easier.

HTML5 History API and improving end user experience

When the AJAX wave came in 2005 when Jesse James Garrett coined the term and then everyone wanted it, one of the major shortcomings was that dynamic updates of only portions of a web page lead to inconsistent history handling and back/forward navigation button problems in web browsers and poor end user experiences.
