@rowan_m @danbri I wish my present life was more of a journey and less of a destination, though. 😂

@danbri @rowan_m My holy grail moment was when the mouse wheel worked after I compiled my own kernel. After 10+ attempts, some of which included reinstalling everything from scratch. 🐧

@AmeliasBrain @kevinmarks Standing on the shoulders of giants, albeit a lot of the work predates my involvement, so I don’t have the full vision. Regarding standardization, we asked the @w3ctag, @mozilla, and @webkit; all linked here: web.dev/text-fragments…

@AmeliasBrain Tiny correction:

A Fragmention is this: indieweb.org/fragmention by @kevinmarks.

The Chrome thing is this: web.dev/text-fragments/.

stshank Twitter shows how and why progressive web apps — PWAs — can work. A tap on a web address can grow gradually to a pretty rich interaction with no trip to an app store required. Developers wish Apple would catch up to Google, thoughcnet.co/3ggXdyyKc

Just learned that there’s a `WKWebKit` based browser on the App Store that apparently implements a part of Web Bluetooth: apps.apple.com/de/app/webble/…. 😳 twitter.com/html5test/stat…

rowan_m If you’re a company that depends on the web platform and a healthy, diverse browser ecosystem then you should invest in it the same way you invest in other critical infrastructure. This isn’t charity, this is business. Here’s somewhere you could direct that budget. twitter.com/igalia/status/…

christianliebel The storefront-related members of the Web App Manifest (categories, description, iarc_rating_id, and screenshots) move to the App Info note, which was published for the first time today. Nothing changes for web devs—keep using the members as before. Thanks to@AaronGustafsonn!twitter.com/w3c/status/128…K

@TheRealNooshu +1 to adding IDs. But then also at least on Chrome and Edge, text fragment URLs are a thing already: web.dev/text-fragments/.

@arya_minus Thanks! :-) But passing this on to the folks mentioned in the Acknowledgments: web.dev/text-fragments….

via Echofon in reply to arya_minus

@adamdbradley @passle_ @stenciljs @chriscoyier That’s why I wrote “subtle” in the original tweet. :-) I don’t think it’s a thing most people should be too concerned with, especially compared to this other very popular alternative framework that twitter.com/tomayac/status…

@xeenon No mention of the new entitlements, though. This can be an important factor for developers.

@othermaciej @pizlonator This is incredibly in-depth, wow 👏 (and I don’t claim I have understood everything). Maybe a nice idea for a follow-up post would be take-aways for developers. Things to avoid, things to do, worst case examples, etc.

dalmaer Perspective matters:

“WebUSB? That’s adding something scary to the Web!”

vs.

“WebUSB! Now we have a safe way to integrate with USB without having to install drivers via privileged exe!”

@simevidas @dantack It’s about optimizing ad space. The more and the shorter your paragraphs, the more ad slots you can fill in between them.

argyleink Here’s gap + flexbox handling international document flows and directions! 💯 Something quite tedious to do by hand with margin & friends.

Combine this with logical properties and you have yourself single definition international spacing and layout 😍 twitter.com/argyleink/stat… pic.twitter.com/2TAiQOKYJ1
