jQuery

I love jQuery, and the things it enables you to do. As we come closer to managed javascript and JIT script and a whole bunch of other javascript engine enhancements I really do start to wonder where the best RIA development environment and accessibility is going to come from. This little plugin which draws the users attention to a particular area of the page is a great wee example of this without the need for browser plugins. Nice one James.

Silverlight

Jonas Follesψ (sorry for the prior misspelling Jonas) reports that Google Chrome now plays nicely with Silverlight 2 (except for when in windowless mode apparently, but definately a step in the right direction). Personal update on this one: Both Googles and Jon Galloways instructions on this (both linked to in Jonas’ article are really easy to follow. I have just done the update and all is sweet πŸ™‚ Even the easter egg in the hard rock cafe deep zoom app works great πŸ™‚ (Press V when the deep zoom has focus then use your mouse wheel to scroll out). /me now sets google chrome as default browser – its just so fast πŸ™‚ – don’t worry firefox you are still my dev browser of choice
