IE10 Preview: HTML5 First Look

“At the Windows Build conference last week we got our hands on a developer preview tablet running Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10. We wanted to share our first impression of the HTML5 experience. Simply put, (and with the caveat that we were running on the notably overpowered developer preview hardware) the IE10 HTML5 experience is one of the best we’ve seen on any platform to date. After a decade of web neglect, Microsoft is back with a vengeance.”

Preventing Cross-Site Request Forgeries

“Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) is a common and serious exploit where a user is tricked into performing an action he didn’t explicitly intend to do. This can happen when, for example, the user is logged in to one of his favorite websites and proceeds to click a seemingly harmless link. In the background, his profile information is silently updated with an attacker’s e-mail address. The attacker can then use the website’s password reset feature to e-mail herself a new password and she’s just successfully stolen the account. Any action that a user is allowed to perform while logged in to a website, an attacker can perform on his/her behalf, whether it’s updating a profile, adding items to a shopping cart, posting messages on a forum, or practically anything else.”

Adaptive Images

“A drop-in solution that automatically creates, caches, and delivers device-appropriate versions of your website’s images. No mark-up changes needed. Adaptive Images is intended for use with Responsive Designs and to be combined with Fluid Image techniques.

Why? Because your site is being increasingly viewed on smaller, slower, low bandwidth devices. Your desktop-centric images load slowly, cause UI lag, and cost you and your visitors un-necessary bandwidth and money.”
