Cicadas are an interesting insect. They live most of their time as a nymph under the ground in between 2 and 5 years, but some species live until 17 years before coming out and die six weeks after. What does it tell us about all the hidden work we put during our lifetime and blooms and shines for only a couple of hours.

- Gecko and Blink/WebKit have different default CSS
border-widthvalues for the
inputelement. It breaks a site. If we decide to fix it in Gecko, do we break other sites relying on this default value?
- Performance issues on a heavy map Web site, though I'm not sure it is really a Web compatibility issue. It looks like more of something related to Gecko.
- Another issue related to layout with a
contentinside a form. I need to dig a bit more.
- no tap on priceline
- Use chrome only for transcribeme
- When using
element.removeEventListener('event', callback)never forgets the second argument because it fails in Firefox, though that seems to be working in Chrome.
mask-imagedifference creates immaterial design. The most important now being to really find what is the source of the issue.
invalidalways the right keyword for closing an issue? From our side (project owner) it is invalid because it is not in the scope of the project, or there isn't enough details to reproduce. But from the user's perspective who had genuinely an issue (whatever the issue is), it can be felt as a strong rejection along the lines of "We don't care about you". Maybe we should find a better way of closing issues when they are out of scope.
- More a quote of the day, but spot on: > Wondering how long it will take for publishers to realize it’s Medium that desperately needs them and not the other way around.
- And another one from Adam. And I really wish we could do that in a cool way!
