When I was doing that video on Google Search I thought to myself wouldn’t it be cool to make a search engine that only searched through design/development sites? I talked myself out of it, because I started to think you’d be better off searching regular Google instead of limiting yourself to certain sites. Reader Art Webb clearly had the same idea, and built TutSearch.net. I almost wish I hadn’t talked myself out of it, because in practice, this is quite cool and serving up pretty great results.
Many of you probably know Chris Spooner from his killer SpoonGraphics Blog. Chris built a new personal homepage, using some ideas from CSS-Tricks! Namely, the Build Your Own Social Home tutorial and the Weather Switcher. But of course, his implementation is much nicer.
I’m sure I won’t be telling anyone here for the first time, but Google has a new browser out. Kind of a surprise to me, but I basically trust Google to do the right thing. It’s based on WebKit so I imagine it’ll share any CSS quirks that Safari has. I haven’t done much playing with it. It’s for Windows-only. I could run it in VMWare but meh, I might just wait until the Mac version is out to do much more playing. I checked out my important sites and that is probably good for now, although I do have a few ideas for tests / CSS quirks I wanna check out at some point.
