Happy Thanksgiving weekend! This week’s Tech Roundup includes free templates, slow websites, a new WordPress magazine, and Black Friday deals for WordPress stuff.
Firefox 10, What’s New? – Not much new in the next-next version of Firefox. Which makes me wonder, why make it a major release?
Spellchecking in Internet Explorer 10, Test It Now – “Internet Explorer 10 will not only support spell checking but also auto correction of text which works identical to that of Microsoft’s Office suite.” That’s something to look forward to.
10 things your clients need to know – I think every designer & developer should read this list. I know I need reminding of them sometimes – mostly the first two. Great tips on how to effectively communicate with your clients about these everyday issues.
Free templates and icons from cxpartners – These are quite cool and free!
Seven Mistakes That Make Websites Slow – A must-read. I just worked with a client that was trying to speed up their website. I used YSlow and Page Speed extensively to determine the sources of the slowdowns. I have to say I much prefer Page Speed. While they mostly test the same things, I found Page Speed to provide some extras like the image optimization. (It provides you with the optimized versions of each image. You just have to click to download them.)
Introducing The WPCandy Quarterly magazine, pre-orders now available – Love WordPress? Here’s a new paper magazine that is all WordPress! It’s going to come out quarterly. If you sign up for a year, you get one issue free. Don’t be surprised by the shipping fee, though. Mine was $9.
Thanksgiving WordPress Coupons & Deals 2011 – Gotta have some tech Black Friday deals, too! Check these out – lots of 50% off.
Don’t forget tomorrow is Small Business Saturday! Show your support by shopping with the smaller guys!
Have a great weekend!
