Can Safari replace Firefox?

Much ado has been made about Steve Job’s presentation at WWDC and, specifically, a pie chart showing IE with a market share unaffected by the release of Safari for Windows but with Safari claiming the entirety of the remaining market share. Mozilla COO John Lilly suggests, quite understandably, that Apple is intending to gain market share at Firefox's expense. The question is: does Apple understand the target audience and can they deliver on a browser that delivers for that target audience better than Mozilla Firefox does?

Website identification in Firefox 3

Johnathan Nightingale recently presented his work on making website identity more transparent (and less confusing) for Firefox users. I downloaded his prototype extension to see for myself exactly where he was headed and I ended up becoming much more interested in his project.

Bookmarklets in Firefox

Firefox extensions are great for adding significant functionality to the browser but for simpler features that can be provided with a simple bookmarklet I prefer not to use an extension. The reason is that every extension adds more code and memory consumption which slows down your browser more and more. However, many bookmarklets are unable to open a new tab or window in their published form.

Dear Google

Dear Google,

I think you go too far. Organizing all my data is one thing. Google Desktop's new feature of collecting every piece of information about me and that I own and transferring it to your site (in order to make it globally searchable) is quite another. Regardless of the integrity of your security, your well-intentions, and your vow to do no evil I have the following concerns.

Golden Gray for Drupal 4.7

I've ported William Pramana's fine Golden Gray Wordpress theme to Drupal 4.7 for a site I'm creating. It was a quick job so there are likely issues but it works reasonably well. It has been tested with Firefox 1.5, Opera 8, and IE 6 on Drupal 4.7.0-beta3 with a modicum of modules (forum, blog, image, and other core modules) enabled.

Captcha fun

After making several revisions of the Drupal Captcha module, I've ended up with something I am satisfied with. My first attempt added support for comments and other content nodes and created a more complex image than the previous version. However, I was not satisfied.

Captcha images are not a very friendly solution for visually impaired users so I revised my captcha module to use a text based challenge response system. While I would agree that this could be circumvented by intelligent parsing (and I expect that it will happen if this method becomes popular), the same is true with OCR and images. So, I'm going to stick with the text method for a while and see how it goes.

You can get my updated captcha module here.


My blog has finally become targeted by a blogspammer so I've restricted comments to logged in users. Since I haven't posted much recently I don't expect this to affect many people for the time being anyway. I'll be looking into a solution for this.

Tabbed browsing comes of age

It looks like tabbed browsing will finally get the usability boost it needs in Firefox 1.0. A recent check-in adds the needed ability to open links from either a webpage or from an external application in a new tab instead of in a new window.

I can finally feel good about not working on the Tabbrowser Preferences extension. I had hoped this functionality would be added eventually anyway.

What's the sign of a good relationship? Bitter, endless arguments of course! At least it works for this guy. ...the secret of a successful relationship is to become irretrievably embroiled in a bitter struggle to the death.

CSS input opacity exploit

Peter-Paul Koch recently published an article on explaining how to use the CSS3 "opacity" style (or equivalent proprietary opacity styles) to change the appearance of file input form fields. While the technique presented in the article might appeal to designers, it also demonstrates a security vulnerability which apparently exists in most modern browsers and which should be fixed.
