Firefox 3 Improvements

Apr 20 2008

It’s been a long time since I’ve had some fun on my own website. So over the weekend I transplanted a nice cover art widget and added yet another navigation element for the most useful stuff on the site.


Since it is my personal site I went a bit overboard. It’s a nice demo for showing how much Firefox 3 improved. Apart from rendering in higher quality (anti-aliased rounded corners, amazing SVG renderer, filtering of scaled images) it’s also way faster. Just head over to the frontpage and compare :)

The sliding effect, called kwick (web 2.0, you know) has been a magnet for the javascript library moo tools for me. I’m happy somebody ported it over to the more human-approachable jquery library too.
