I just stumbled upon this infographic by @paulrouget that explains the differences between Mozilla Firefox (4) and the just released Microsoft Internet Explorer 9. I have to say, that I was pretty excited about this new IE version, because I thought that maybe finally the headaches over IE compatibility will start to fade away. But after reading through all those information I am very disappointed. For instance they still didn’t implement simple CSS stuff like text-shadow? Seriously?! (And I’m not even talking about transitions, gradients or HTML5 history API)

When will Microsoft wake up and get their act together? Is there really any incentive in releasing a browser that lacks so far behind? Especially when they already acknowledged that their older products (IE7 & IE8) are lacking most of the modern web technologies and thus they needed to release IE9.
Thanks to @malde for sharing this in Google Reader!
If your mobile strategy for 2011 is to hire someone to build an iphone app, then you are probably missing the big picture.
A quote from a very interesting article over at The Next Web blog about the “Free Day of Javascipt on Mobile” Event at Google HQ. It offers some pretty good insights on where the mobile web & mobile app ecosystem might move over the course of 2011.
The HTML5 Boilerplate is a (near) perfect template to start off a new web project according to the newest standards.

I shifted around a few things on my blog today. The main thing is, that the blog header now shows my latest tweet (which is also my latest Facebook status) and the time since it was posted.
Other improvements include a reorganisation of the sidebar widgets and a few CSS adaptions.
Stay tuned, there’s probably a lot more to come on that topic!
