This is a nice feature. This Firefox extension called View Rendered Source Chart will graphically show you sections of defined code in a web page. Really an advanced form of syntax highlighting or intellegent indenting might be a way to think of this extension. See the screenshots on the extension page or over here where the history of the extension is laid out in great detail to demonstrate how well maintained the extension is.

This is a great tutorial on how to build a Firefox Extension. I am tempted to try one myself!

I was disappointed with day five of the current Google Doodle — and I suspect the final one in the series. The mouse puts together a wheel and powers the plug on the logo. That part is fine and clever, but it just washes out the logo with pastel behind it. I hope they continue the tradition.

A C-Net article indicates Opera denies rumors of the company being aquired by Microsoft. I am not sure it would be a bad thing. If Microsoft decided to bring Opera to the masses in lieu of Internet Explorer it would improve the world. The article sure doesn’t reflect our experience however in browser market share … claiming that Firefox only has 8% of the market. We show Firefox/Mozilla at over 40% of our visitors! (See the sidebar to the right of our main page for our current statistics).

Continuing to lose market share of MAC browser users, Microsoft is throwing in the Internet Explorer towel. Do it now, if you use a MAC, dump IE. It has not had an update of consequence in three years anyway as explained here on C-Net.

I like Firefox a lot! I use only a few extensions these days, mainly web developer, bugMeNot and form spell checking called spellbound (installation of this one is a little tricky). I used to use a couple of the tab extensions. This article over at got me thinking I should try a couple more of them.

This article at C-Net talks about a move to increase the level of investigation required to obtain a valid secure socket layer certificate. The reason alleged is that people are too easily getting secure certificates, leading to phishing schemes that look authentic.

I suspect the real reason is that it will increase the cost of the certificates, resulting in significant extra profits for the issuing companies. I daily get phishing scam emails. Many look very real in HTML format email, but always (thus far) are clearly bogus in plain text format.

The actual sites, when you visit them are impressive. A domain we sometimes work on was hacked last week (only our second incident of successful hacking) and GoDaddy flagged the domain almost immediately and closed the site until the content was removed. That was pretty impressive. I really doubt that phishers are purchasing secure certificates with great regularity to make their sites look secure. More likely they are hacking onto someones already secure site.

The other item of note is that MicroSoft is still talking about releasing Internet Explorer 7. Until they do — and probably after they do — go get a copy of FireFox 1.5 at

This site is totally free to use, you have absolutely no moral or legal obligations to help us continue.
There are however, some costs involved in running the site.

<random humor>
Plus we have nearly doubled in visitors in the past week, (We hope :-).

So if this site helped you find your way, perhaps you could consider contributing to our costs. Whatever amount you feel this site was worth to you would be just wonderful.
Use PayPal if you do decide to share and help us with the costs and in appreciation for our time and attention, or alternatively buy a book from our Bookstore..
