Breaking down Amazon’s mega dropdown Ben Kamens (bjk5) breaks down the technique behind Amazon's awesome new mega menu, and then how they implemented the same technique for the Khan Academy site.

a week with Chrome

by Rob Friesel

I broke down and decided to try out Google’s Chrome browser after having heard so many positive reviews of it.  It’s backed by WebKit–just like Safari, my current favorite–and so if nothing else, I know it has a tried and true and powerful engine going behind the scenes.  That said, I’ve tried out more than […]

Yours Truly: Signature in Apple Mail

by Rob Friesel

A few months ago in my “pre-packaged Apple apps vs. Mozilla equivalents” round-up, I made mention of how Apple’s Mail (or the dreaded “” if you prefer) application had mediocre signature support. My criticism went something like: Pain in the butt. Can’t reference external files and what’s worse, you can’t edit the HTML source of […]
