WebAIM: Blog - History of the browser user-agent string

WebAIM: Blog - History of the browser user-agent string: "And Apple built Safari, and used KHTML, but added many features, and forked the project, and called it WebKit, but wanted pages written for KHTML, and so Safari called itself Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; de-de) AppleWebKit/85.7 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/85.5, and it got worse."

Modern Web Development

Modern Web Development: "From a DOM-debugging perspective, one of the cooler features of the console is its integration with the Elements panel (which we’ll discuss in the next section). Any element that’s selected in the Elements panel can be quickly accessed using “$0”. That will reference the element and allow you to interact with it. Inversely, whenever you see a DOM node printed in the console, you can right click on it and click “Reveal in Elements Panel” to quickly find it in the DOM.

Modern Web Development

Modern Web Development: "I’ve tried to sort them from oldest to newest. Chrome Canary gets updated with new features all the time. After they bake for a while with the early adopters, they make their way slowly to Chromium, WebKit Nightlies, Chrome, then Safari. At any given time, Safari’s Inspector is about a year’s worth of development behind Chrome Canary. That is to say, use Chrome Canary for your development."

Soft 404 errors - Webmaster Tools Help

Soft 404 errors - Webmaster Tools Help: "We recommend that you always return a 404 (Not found) or a 410 (Gone) response code in response to a request for a non-existing page. You can improve the user experience by configuring your site to display a custom 404 page when returning a 404 response code. For example, you could create a page containing a list of your most popular pages, or a link to your home page, or a feedback link. You can also use the Webmaster Tools Custom 404 widget to add a search box and more site search options to your site. But it’s important to remember that it’s not enough to just create a page that displays a 404 message. You also need to return the correct 404 or 410 HTTP response code.
