This is a great resource for checking compatibility tables for support of HTML5, CSS3, SVG and more in desktop and mobile browsers.
With HTML5 being so much more prevalent now than it has been in any time in the past, I thought it would be a good time to share some important wisdom. With HTML5, object and embed tags are going the way of the dodo. It's very sad, I know, but we must move on.

Recently, I've delved into the world of Chrome extensions, partially because I'm interested in learning the technology, but more because the add-ons I wanted just didn't exist yet. If you're interested in getting started but want to know what you'll need to get moving I'd recommend the following resources:
https://github.com/EdGuiness/date-picker/wiki/What-I-learned-from-writing-my-first-Chrome-extension -This is a general explanations of some little things to look out for while developing and states what you'll need to get started.
http://developer.chrome.com/extensions/getstarted.html -The Chrome extensions development page for getting started. A required resource for specific questions including code samples.
http://tutorialzine.com/2010/06/making-first-chrome-extension/ -Finally, a basic tutorial covering the steps to creating an extension.

Isaac and I got into a discussion today stemming from an interesting blog post from Raymond Camden. Raymond was discussing how he had run into issues binding events in jQuery mobile on the 'pageshow' event. While the solution he presents is adequate, there is another neat way to do this.
.on() is a very powerful function that combines the functionality of three recently deprecated methods: .bind(), .live(), and .delegate()
Below is a tutorial on how to bind delegated events.
Let's take a basic jQuery mobile snippet with 3 buttons.
Now let's bind a click event to the buttons so they display the value of the data-bacon attribute in the status div.
So what happens here?
We call .on() passing 'click' as the event type, 'button' as the selector to apply the event to, and a function to run when the event fires.
Now, when you click a button on the body, #status displays the particular data-bacon attribute of the clicked button.
You can view the complete sample here: http://jsfiddle.net/Bw9Kh/

We had some fun with this seemingly simple problem today. Setting up a new web site, we found that the "favicon" graphic (the little icon that show up next to your page's URL or title in a browser tab or address bar) was working for all browsers but Internet Explorer (IE).
It turns out that IE is very particular about the way that the favicon must be set. The graphic must be of type "ICO". While other browsers support GIF, JPG, and PNG icons, IE requires ICO.
Next, a reference to the icon must be included in thesection of your HTML document, using the tag. The tag must have the attributes "rel", "type", and "href" set to the values "SHORTCUT ICON", "image/vnd.microsoft.icon", and the full URL (including http:// and your domain) to the ICO file.
