Weekend Link Roundup: Week 12Written by Mark Sanborn: Jun 14, 2008
CSS Compressor - A cool script that will compress your css files. Most of my files were compressed by 20% or more.
CssTidy - I found this shortly after cssdrive’s script and thought it was much better at compressing. Both of them are worth checking into.
Opera 9.5 is Released! - I have been using the beta release for awhile now and I LOVE it. The final release is now out and filled with new features. “Opera continues to lead in performance. Opera 9.5 makes dramatic speed improvements to the e-mail client, RSS feeds and the browser itself, so you can spend more time getting things done online.”
Opera Dragonfly - The Webdevelopment suite for Opera - This basically works like firebug for firefox.
Field Guide to Firefox 3 - I personally like Opera at the moment, but firefox is making a lot of improvements to their newest beta release. Check out this article for a complete guide on whats happening with the up and comming Firefox release. I personally don’t like the new look of firefox’s forward and back button. I think it looks way too similar to IE7.
15 Tools to Help You Develop Faster Web Pages - A nice list of tools to help with rapid web development. I use some of these tools myself.
How to Recover Deleted Files with Free Software - See what is actually stored on your hard drive even after you delete it.
Ransomware Encrypts Victim Files With 1024-Bit Key - Viruses are now encrypting files with 1024 bit keys requesting ransom for your files. Talk about a destructive virus. With current technology there is no way to reverse the encryption without the key. Be very careful and make a backup of your data. I have a feeling we will start to see more of these types of viruses in the future.
