Browserondersteuning

An article, posted 7 months ago filed in browser, Edge, chrome, Firefox, support, mobile, Safari, complexity, quality & performance.

murb hanteert een browser support grading systeem (een idee dat ik ooit heb gekregen van Anselm Hanneman bij het lezen van How to define a browser support level matrix) voor browserondersteuning. We classificeren browsers met een A, B, C of D.

Klasse Omschrijving A Beste gebruikerservaring; alle features werken en weergave is duidelijk. B Alle features werken. Weergave niet altijd optimaal. C Basis functionaliteit werkt (in ieder geval rollen buiten controle (b.v. niet-admin functies)), maar geavanceerdere functies zijn niet altijd beschikbaar. Performance mogelijk niet optimaal. D Wordt niet ondersteund.

B2B projecten

Veelal kantoortoepassingen, complexe schermen, mobile support is een nice to have.

Klasse A Browsers:

  • Google Chrome op Desktop (laatste en op één na laatste versie)
  • Micros…

Variable fonts

An article, posted more than 3 years ago filed in google, fonts, typekit, adobe, chrome, Firefox, Safari, web & design.

Last decade the web has been catching up with print. The advent of better delivery formats for type (WOFF(2)) and the rise of services such as Typekit and Google Fonts made the web for typography as interesting as print. But now a new specification is gaining popularity, and it may make the web more interesting than print: variable fonts.

Some background: In word processors you can typically choose between a few basic type variants Bold, Italic and Bold Italic. Some types appear with a 'Black' or 'Light' version in the font list. More professional products for graphic professionals (think Illustrator, Indesign, QuarkXpress), paired with a complete font-family, are, however able set type using 'font-weight'. While CSS has a font-weight-property, offering 'variable' weights (typically rounded to the nearest 100) to a web page would make that page load much slower. …

Becoming your own local certificate authority (and issue your first certificate)

An article, posted more than 3 years ago filed in security, chrome, Firefox, Safari, certificate & how i do it.

It has been quite some time ago, but here is another 'how i do it' article :)

If, by 'accident' you have, like me, chosen projectname.dev for your local development as a convention, and you want to continue using this convention; you will need to become your own CA. There is no other way around it. I tried searching disabling HSTS for localhost.dev, certificate for localhost.dev, but to no avail. Being your own CA, however, makes you HSTS proof (note that you can’t typically override an already set HSTS certificate, that is by design). However, in the old days you could simply mark your own self-signed certificate as trusted for your own domains. This is becoming less of an option these days. Becoming your own CA, however, still is an option.

Warning: The chain of trust

You should trust yourself not share your rootCA’s key and cert with anyone e…
