Google Chrome.. or GlaDOS? on 02 Sep 08 (2 comments)

I downloaded Google Chrome tonight. It’s the pretty! Only scary thing is something Joe noticed… how much the logo looks like GlaDOS from Portal. Remember that time I pretended to murder you?

IETester: test IE5.5 to IE8 on the same computer on 07 Aug 08 (Add comment)

My favourite new webdev tool of the moment is IETester. You can use it to test pages in IE5.5, IE6, IE7 and IE8 all on the same machine without messing around with your main installed version of IE. I was pretty amazed when I saw it because I’d always believed that it was a bit […]

Switching opera desktop to hand held mode for testing on 11 May 08 (1 comment)

Apparently some people used it to tell the team how much they hate IE. :) I can understand that being a problem […]

Here’s a quick link for myself for the web developer toolbars you can install for Firefox and IE6. I love them because the web developer toolbars make doing clientside work so much easier. They give you tools to find out information about the page that you’re working on without having to do a million alert […]
