How browsers work Introduction Web browsers are probably the most widely used software. In this book I will explain how they work behind the scenes. We will see what happens when you type '' in the address bar until you see the Google page on the browser screen. The browsers we will talk about There are five major browsers used today - Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera. 13 Essential Tools to Check Cross-Browser Compatibility With an endless combination of modern and legacy browsers for users to choose from (depending on their system capabilities), it's our responsibility as designers and developers to ensure the websites we build perform adequately. Testing multiple browsers on multiple platforms isn't just difficult — it can be virtually impossible without the correct resources. However there are tools that let you comprehensively test your website, and check if it successfully displays across various browsers, platforms and resolutions.

SMS Education: Poll Everywhere Is Making the Mobile Pop Quiz More Affordable Over 40% of students text during class and 80% say they've never been caught. That sounds like a bit of a quandary for teachers, but not for much longer: Teachers can now hijack students' cell phones for educational purposes, including testing, homework assignments, quizzes, and more. Poll Everywhere, which specializes in instant audience feedback via text messaging, and Mobile Messenger, a technology solutions group that partners with carriers, have partnered to develop affordable, educational SMS programs. Instead of barking at students to put their phones away, teacher can instead ask them to whip out the phones for a flash quiz during class.

What Every Frontend Developer Should Know About Webpage Rendering — Frontend Babel Today I'd like to focus on the subject of web page rendering and why it is important in web development. A lot of articles are available covering the subject, but the information is scattered and somehow fragmented. To wrap my head around the subject, for example, I had to study a lot of sources. That's why I decided I should write this article. I believe the article will be useful for beginners as well as for more advanced developers who want to refresh and structure what they already know.

HTML5 Cross Browser Polyfills · Modernizr/Modernizr Wiki The No-Nonsense Guide to HTML5 Fallbacks So here we're collecting all the shims, fallbacks, and polyfills in order to implant HTML5 functionality in browsers that don't natively support them. The general idea is that: We, as developers, should be able to develop with the HTML5 APIs, and scripts can create the methods and objects that should exist. Developing in this future-proof way means as users upgrade, your code doesn't have to change but users will move to the better, native experience cleanly. - The Developer's Guide To Writing Cross-Browser JavaScript Polyfills I believe it's one of our responsibilities as designers and developers to both advocate for best practices and encourage others to make the leap to using modern features for a modern web. At the same time, we need to do our best to avoid leaving users with older browsers behind. Polyfills - a term coined by Remy Sharp to describe JavaScript shims that replicate the standard API found in native features of new browsers for those without such features - are a way of helping us achieve this.
