Lots of Little Things

Projects and Code306 words2 minutes to read

I’ve got two posts on my laptop that I simply haven’t had the time to post. I’ll try to get to it this evening.

Meanwhile, I recently found out that my cookie script has been recommended on IBM’s forums, my Java detection script has been talked about on Sun’s Java forums, my Message Center 5.5 script is gaining popularity at Coding Forums, and I continue to get help with ideas to improve my Flash detection script (which uses a format that I will soon switch all of my other detection scripts to because it’s more flexible).

I’m aware of two different projects that are using the standalone IE’s: OpTool, which appears to add the ability to load any URL into any browser, and MozIE that allows you to have a split-screen view of a webpage with multiple browsers at once.

I’ve also been contacted about using my Feed Parser engine in an upcoming application he’s writing. Nothing too nailed down yet though, as I’m still working out bugs for a v0.7 release.

Lastly, I came across a site today that points to one of my posts about the browser wars. This is what she had to say:

This article/story about the Browser Wars is brilliant. How the writer has managed to make a fairy story out of the browser wars makes it amusing to read. It provides the story in such a way that you would find it so easy to understand. I feel that he is more biased towards Netscape than to Internet Explorer. He talks about the domination of King Explorer and the Emperor of AOL. But waiting in the wings patiently is Inigo Mozilla.

I think this is the best article I have read in a long time.
