Revision 250: Achtung Baby!
For our 250th episode, we managed to get our greedy hands on no one less than Bruce Lawson from Opera. Having barely returned from a trip to Asia and still dizzy from his jetlag, we managed to extract a whole bunch of classified information on CSS Houdini out of him (also thanks to our German interview style). And a little bit more as well:
- [00:02:01] Safari 9.1
- We talked about the new Safari version, what features it brings, and how it looks like it’s the first installment of a new rapid release cycle.
- [00:12:13] The CSS Houdini Project
- Bruce told us what the purpose of CSS Houdini is, how at came to be, which parts it consists of, and when to expect first experiments shipping to us in a browser (maybe this year already!).
- [00:37:50] Subgrids Considered Essential
- Prompted by a blog post from Eric Meyer we discussed the current CSS Grids spec and how it is badly lacking a subgrids feature.
- The web accessibility basics
- Accessibility can never be overly discussed. Marco wrote a good roundup on how do accessibility basics right, and he also takes a glimpse at a few more advanced things.
- Simple standalone toggletip widget pattern
- Likewise, Steve Faulkner from the Partiello Group showcases a prototype for an accessible info tooltip widget.
