Weekly Tech Roundup

This week’s Tech Roundup includes an SEO checklist, Adobe MAX treats, and responsive web design.

Mozilla bashes Microsoft’s browser security test – I’m shocked that Microsoft created a website that judges its browsers better than others. Shocked! (I’m being sarcastic.) Fascinating little website they’ve come up with. I think it’s important to be aware of security risks and, really, you should be wary of all browsers. A good read.

16 Awesome Vector Packs for Creepy Halloween Illustrations – It’s not too late to put out a newsletter, e-card, or invitation for Halloween. Take a look at these Halloween vectors for inspiration or to use in your project.

A Web Developer’s SEO Checklist – This isn’t a recent article but I just came across it this week. A handy guide for web developers. It includes 7 areas to check. A lot of it is common sense but a lot of websites fail all of them.

Adobe MAX 2011 – Photoshop Image Deblurring sneak – This is really cool!

What are CSS Shaders? – Another interesting item to come out of Adobe MAX.

Responsive Web Design Demystified and #102: Braindump on Responsive Web Design – For those that need to design & develop for multiple view ports – various mobile, tablets, and monitors.

If you enjoy these Roundups please share with your friends!

Have a great weekend!

.net/practical web designTwo cool things from the pages of December’s Practical Web Design (.net Magazine in the UK):

Microsoft unveiled WebsiteSpark, which provides Windows Web Server and SQL Server Web Edition free to web companies with 10 or fewer employees. Companies must “provide services, support and hosting to businesses that develop web sites and applications.” Excellent if you’re a small business that develops on the Windows Server platform! (I’m UNIX-based myself.)

Google created What Browser? to explain what web browsers are and do and provides links to download all the major browsers. The blurb in the article suggests Google is trying to push Chrome with the site, but I thought it was pretty neutral. FWIW, I use Firefox for my browsing and I test all of my design/development work in at least Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome, and Firefox (all on PC).
