The month of July is drawing to a close as Mozilla, Dolphin, and Google roll out updates for their Android web browsers. Chrome only gained minimal improvements (the best stuff is actually in the beta app) but both Firefox and Dolphin added new features. Continue reading

If you can read this, then you managed to avoid the congestion. Congratulations.
A number of people have reports that they have trouble visiting TDR. My hosting company have told me that they are currently the victim of a distributed denial of service attack. They’re dealing with it as fast as they can.
If not, then let me explain. The way a web app works is that it uses HTLM5 to run entirely from inside your web browser. It’s kinda a trick that builds an app into what you might think of as a web page.
Unfortunately, Apple have been caught throttling web apps.

It was interesting to see that iOS had hit 2%; I don’t see nearly that much on this blog (not that that matters). But then I really looked at the source of the numbers and I realized there might be a problem. Continue reading
