sIFR: Rich typography for masses
  » Dec 28, 11:35 AM  Add to Delicious!

sIFR (or Scalable Inman Flash Replacement) is a revolutionary technique, which is meant to replace short passages of plain browser text with text rendered in your typeface of choice, regardless of whether or not your users have that font installed on their systems. It accomplishes this by using a combination of javascript, CSS, and Flash. Released to the world as open source, sIFR is getting more and more popular, particularly among web-developers using sIFR for their projects.

Google Zeitgeist 2005
  » Dec 27, 11:05 AM  Add to Delicious!

As the year 2005 passes by, Google summarizes, what the Internet-users have been searching for over the last 12 months: which movies were the most popular, which trends attracted the interest of the masses and which sites have become popular. Apparently, Green Day, Leonardo da Vinci, iTunes and Sky News have gained on weight in the Web, while Janet Jackson, Hurricane Katrina and Brad Pitt have been the most wanted in 2005.

Javascript Library Roundup
  » Nov 7, 08:47 PM  Add to Delicious!

There are so many of them, but there are only 10-15 which make the life of web-developers easier. Javascripts: tiny, small, but extremely useful instruments – such as form checkers, style switchers, expanding/collapsing layers scripts, table sorters; sometimes they are even more useful than you think they ever could be.

But have you ever wondered where you could get those? Or why you never are able to find them when you need them? I have. Therefore here is the Javascript Libraries Roundup, the list of several web-sites presenthing the essential javascripts’ toolboxex for web-developers. You definitely shouldn’t miss them. I am sure you won’t now.

Wow. I haven’t expected this result.

25 Best Free Quality Fonts
  » Oct 15, 01:00 AM  Add to Delicious!

Recently I’ve been browsing through the Net searching for the best license-free fonts which would fit as a serious heading for a serious online-presentation. Fortunately, I wasn’t the first web-developer, who was trying to find such fonts.

I’ve found some collections, created by freelancing typo-artists, such as Manfred Klein’s Fonteria, Designer In Action: Fonts,, Apostrophic Laboratories’ Collection, Identifont – Free Fonts and others.

So I’ve decided to create the Top 20 Best License-Free Official Fonts, which are likely to be used rather for official, serious presentations (such as business sites) than a colourful teenager’s homepage.

Most fonts presented below are absolutely license-free which means that you can use them for both private, personal and commercial purposes without any limitations whatsoever…

I've been Slashdotted. Again!
  » Aug 15, 03:45 PM  Add to Delicious!

Ganz gemütlich saß ich vor meinem PC, las einen Artikel über Web 2.0 und chattete per ICQ. Als ich mich entschied, sich die Statistik für mein “Web Developer’s Handbook” anzuschauen, hatte ich natürlich nicht mal vermuten können, was mich dort erwartet hatte…
