  • Posted to What Monitor do You Use ?, in reply to Brian Hinton , Apr 27, 2017

    I use this too!

    I actually have a pair, one at home which I use with my Windows desktop (mostly to play games @ 4K) and one at work I use with my work Mac. It's the closest thing you can get to a Retina Display, save for a LG UltraFine 4K/5K.

    My only gripe is the 16:9 aspect radio which is a lot less tall than what I've used to with Macs.

    Good points about keeping eye on the PPI if you want a external "Retina" display. Only monitor I feel like is missing is the 24" Dell P2415Q. It's the monitor I got to go with my Retina MacBook Pro and desktop PC. At 185 ppi it works perfectly well with both MacOS and Windows 10 in 200% scaling mode.

    Solution: make the first link in the navigation the home page.

  • Posted to A curated list of everything that goes in the <head> of your document, May 24, 2016

    I fail to see how this list is "curated" in any way. Sure, it has some good stuff like Open Graph/Twitter cards which are actually used by the respective social networks but half of the stuff is legacy tags from 90's (like keywords) or something that doesn't have any actual use. This list just encourages people to blidly copy paste these tags on their page without thinking:

    1. What do the tags actually do
    2. Does any service/crawler use them
    3. Is there any actual benefit of adding them

    I mean, it also has some tags for IE 6 (released 15 years ago) but clearly labeled "do not use". Why even have those tags listed then if they don't have any value?

    Reddit anywhere with the official app

    Anywhere doesn't apparently include any place outside the U.S.

    You might want to check out Vivaldi, a spiritual successor to Opera made by some former Opera devs. It uses the WebKit engine and has pretty good customization options.

    Looks like a really nice and comprehensive set!

    One thing I noticed that the old "t" Twitter logo is still included even though it's not been used by Twitter for almost five years and its use is actually discouraged. Seeing the old Google "g" logo isn't included, why the Twitter "t"?

    What about Responsive?

    PageCloud simplifies the complex and time consuming task of make sites mobile friendly, by offering a mobile mode, where you can reflow your content to make sure it’s absolutely beautiful on mobile devices. And it only takes seconds per page

    So, it's not responsive?

    I like to read quality articles about web development too, but this article reads like obvious SEO spam and has zero redeeming value.
