Seen a lot of discussions about Ads blockers. It seems it's like pollen fever, these discussions are seasonal and recurrent. I have a proposal for the Web and its publishing industry. Each time, you are using the term in an article Ad Blocker, replace it by Performance Enhancer or Privacy Safeguard and see if your article still makes sense. Tune of the week: Feeling Good — Nina Simone.

- Instagram-style filters in HTML5 Canvas. Clever technique for applying filters to photo when browsers are lacking support for CSS filters. Two thoughts: 1. What is the performance analysis? 2. This should be tied to a class name with a proper fallback for seeing the image when JS is not here.
- 6 reasons to start using flexbox. "But in actual fact, flexbox is very well supported, at 95.89% global support. (…) The solution to this I have settled on is to just use autoprefixer. Keeping track of which vendor prefixes we need to use for what isn’t necessarily the best use of our time and effort, so we can and should automate it."
- Seen that introductory blog post about CSS. I liked it very much, because it's very basic. It's written for beginners but with a nice turn into it. It also reminds me that writing about the simplest thing can be very helpful to others.
