In the garden, the buds of plums tree are breaking out. We will get flower this week. Tune of the week: Gnarls Barkley - Crazy.

Webcompat Life

>>> labels = ['info', 'ready', 'wait']
>>> counts = ['2', '100', '69']
>>> zip(labels, counts)
[('info', '2'), ('ready', '100'), ('wait', '69')]
>>> dict(zip(labels, counts))
{'info': '2', 'ready': '100', 'wait': '69'}

Quite cool. Anyway the script will help have an overview of the status of webcompat bugs progress:

Webcompat issues

(a selection of some of the bugs worked on this week).

  • We fixed a bug in Firefox which should allow to stop Amazon doing a special casing for prefetching resources. The full story is interesting, I should write a blog post about it.
  • Oh My Cow! This slider is a bit crazy and very intensive in terms of resources used by the browser. It uses dynamic setting of the style attribute in many elements at once through JavaScript for sliding effects. and DHML haha
  • Wired has a funny way of dealing with flexbox. An invalid value for a standard flexbox property and Firefox falling back to the -webkit- implementation which is itself bogus and then everything is falling apart. Fun! This happens only in Nightly and Aurora because of our -webkit- implementation that we are currently testing. development

I didn't have time this week to dive into this. Unfortunately.
