Tested on IE7 and IE9.
Here is a useful way to change the resolution of Internet Explorer if you need to test
a webapp on a specific resolution. It is pretty useful if you do not want to change the OS settings and/or if you need to test several resolutions.
- Add a favorite (shortcut : CTRL+D)
- Choose a name (for instance : 1024×768)
- Display the favorites
- Right-click on the favorite and edit its properties
Follow the same steps to add another bookmarklet for another resolution.
Then to change the resolution, you just need to select the favorite.

Some discussion that i found on the matter : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=688841
Not surprisingly, Google is dropping Wave. The official statement from a vice senior president of Google is here :
Well, I got an invite and even attended a demo once but never got the time or the desire to use it.
The site http://www.antiifcampaign.com/ aims to persuade developers to avoid using too many IFs in their code and to use “Object Oriented principles” instead.
It seems like a nice effort, too bad there is not much to see in the website (only 1 article).
Despite attending a presentation with a live demo at the Paris JUG this week, I think this picture sums up well the idea I have about Google Wave at the moment. And that most people have.
Last night, I attended a meeting about Terracotta and the presenter was the creator, Ari Zilka. Among his slides was what i found an interesting slide about Terracotta’s advantages : scalability and availability.
I reproduced it here. Scalability is a term often used in the computing area.
Writing data in memory is less scalable than writing on hard disks but on the other side data written in memory is more available (in terms of speed access) than data written on disks.
The coolest gift for geeks, the A0 poster of the 2008 Web Trend Map (841mm x 1189mm / 33.25in x 46.75in), is now up for grabs:
I was interviewed by Google a year ago or so, I kind of concurr with his point of view regarding Google’s recruitment process.
