Implementing Push Notifications: Setting Up & Firebase

You know those the little notification windows that pop up in the top right (Mac) or bottom right (Windows) corner when, for example, a new article on our favorite blog or a new video on YouTube was uploaded? Those are push notifications.

Quantum CSS

“Quantum CSS” is the new name for “Stylo”, which is the new CSS rendering engine, a part of “Project Quantum” which is the project name to rewrite all of Firefox’s internals, which will be called “Servo”.

It’s fascinating, but ultimately the win is for users of Firefox. Lin Clark:

It takes advantage of modern hardware, parallelizing the …

Cross Browser Testing with CrossBrowserTesting

(This is a sponsored post.)

Say you do your development work on a Mac, but you’d like to test out some designs in Microsoft Edge, which doesn’t have macOS version. Or vice versa! You work on a PC and you need to test on Safari, which no longer makes a Windows version.

It’s a classic problem, and one I’ve been dealing with for a decade. I remember buying a copy of Windows Vista, buying software to manage virtual machines, …
