I sort of agree with the pictorial definition of the Web Developers and Web Designers. Though there have been instances when things have been the other way round for each of them.

image thumb14 Google Releases Crash And Burn Chrome: The Experimental Chrome Canary Build

Keep evolving if you are to stay on top of the line. That is what I think and perhaps it comes from Google and its powerful web browser, Chrome. The browser has just got a latest experimental build titled the Chrome Canary and it is in every a threat to users. What makes its threatening or risky? Well Google plans to introduce this build with a bid that changes inducted will be implemented without any user verification. Which means you are the lab monkey testing out changes first up.

We talked quite in detail about the new PHP that Facebook was set to roll out for its developer’s community. While those were just rumors till yesterday, as today the social network confirmed the release of HipHop for PHP.

Now if this is what it’s meant to be, I bet it will benefit amateurs like me the most.

The status comments and comments in return of comments marching in numbers to my inbox bothered me big time. The idea to have it there was highly problematic to begin with as it kept bombarding you with notifications, however it is gone now. Thanks Facebook, as a user it has definitely removed the pain it caused me.

While I am here praising the move, the developer community is not happy. We all know why. I have no grudges against them or how their products benefitted from these notifications. This was already in the talks for the entire month as Facebook was always looking to put an end to notifications on user feeds, what might really be bothering them is the fact that hardly a few days back the social network had confirmed that they will not be making the move. So why exactly has been done and what was the issue?
