Link Roundup: IE8, Google Chrome, 4-Day Weeks, and authentication
September 3, 2008 at 3:00 AM
New products, plugins, and announcements have been coming thick and fast in the last couple of weeks, but here are some of the interesting posts we’ve been reading:
- Peter-Paul Koch summarises the changes in the new beta of IE8, and notes that its “backwards-compatibility mode” doesn’t actually emulate older browsers correctly;
- Jon Hicks deflates the Google Chrome hype by pointing out that all of their UI enhancements have actually been done before;
- Chris at Particletree discusses their 4-1/2 day work week arrangement at Wufoo, which includes a 2pm lie-in on a Friday — sounds good to me!
- and David “Fat Businessman” Thompson muses on OAuth authentication and password anti-patterns — are you careful enough with your passwords?
