    • Free Akamai-sponsored WebPageTest API keys (limited to 200 page loads/day), @………’s post
    • Latest jQuery release adds workaround for querySelector bug in Safari, @………’s post

    • Accessibility considerations when dynamically displaying and hiding content, @………’s post
      • If a focused element is hidden with display: none, the focus position is reset (e.g. by focusing the URL of the page). This keyboard accessibility issue can be fixed by using “visually hidden” styles instead.

    • @………: “Aggressively compress @2x images”, post (toward the end)
      • “Even though @2x images have more pixels, it’s surprising how aggressively they can be compressed. It turns out that compression artifacts are roughly the same scale as pixels, so when a high resolution image is packed into a smaller space, these compression artifacts are far less apparent.”
