IE8 dogorywa

Półtora roku temu napisałem po angielsku artykuł IE8 must die! Chciałem przekonać nim, że warto powalczyć o zagrzebanie IE8. Wówczas miał on jeszcze 4% polskiego runku.

How about a game of CSS chess?

There are some new CSS selectors which let you cleanup your HTML from unwanted classes. One of them is :nth-child which let you make a chess board with not a single trace of JaveScript and no classes in table cells. I write this in present tense, but as I wrote before - many CSS selectors and other neat stuff is missing in IE8. Please install updates or different browsers to your friends and neighbors. You can track your progress on IE8 countdown page ;-).

HTML compass madness!

So I wanted to do a compass from a while just to push it to some apps mostly as a nice way of showing directions (e.g. "this way to the museum"). I thought that the hardest part would be to draw the needle, and translate North azimuth to object azimuth. Turned out I was wrong...

Update: There is now a more stable version of below code with additional library fo mocking compass and PhoneGap support. See: WebCompass project.
