As a creative professional across multiple fields and an avid Apple user, I feel a certain sense of urgency when I think on the recent releases, innovations, and blunders of a company whose products I have come to rely on so completely. I’d like to take a few minutes, then, to take up the pro and con perspectives regarding the future of Apple.
This week’s contender in the browser brawl is Apple’s own Safari, a browser that means to capture all the innovation, intuition, and intelligence of Apple’s products. Safari provides a minimal, delightful experience that integrates incredibly well with and across Apple devices.
The first combatant in the battle of the browsers is the champion of the Open Web, Mozilla Firefox. For many of us, Firefox was our first step away from the tyranny of the big blue E. Since its initial release in 2002, Firefox has managed to claw its way to the top, recruiting half a billion users to the Mozilla open source cause.
Like many designers and developers (I’m sure), I’ve found myself stuck in a browser rut. Every time I find a new one, I’m always super excited about the different features and quirks they offer but, at the end of the day, I still rely on Chrome as my window to the web world.
No more! Beginning today, for the sake of science and personal growth, I shall a different browser each week, all week, pitting big and small against each other in a battle royale I can only refer to as Browser Smackdown!
You may have noticed a new theme on keithshelley.net. Yes, it’s pretty. Yes, it’s simple. No, sadly it’s not mine.
This lovely theme is called Simone and it’s by one of my WordPress heroes, Morten Rand-Hendriksen. It’s built on the _S theme and it’s just what I need right now. So, why the switch at all?
