There must be 80 million tutorials for turning unordered lists into pretty navigation using CSS. This is not #80,000,001. Here, I focus on one detail that often gets overlooked: how to give the user the perception that her click had an immediate effect. In this post, I borrow a little inspiration from Apple.com and show you how to give your site fast nav.

With apologies to David Letterman’s Stupid Human Tricks segment, I presented a session at Barcamp Auckland (BCA3) on some WebKit-specific features you can leverage in web applications for iPhone, Android, and the Palm Pre. This is my synopsis, plus a bonus trick I didn’t present at the (un)conference!

Recently, on Dashboard-Dev, Aaron Vizzini asked how to integrate Growl notifications into Dashboard widgets. I just did this in Hurler and tr.im.it, so I am happy to document the process here.

In the 3 days since I first published Simple Templates, I have released 1 bug fix and 1 minor upgrade. It’s a much better plugin than it was a couple of days ago. I guess this is why they say “Release early. Release often.”

Overall, I love jQuery. One thing I have missed from my Prototype days was simple, built-in templating. Introducing jQuery Simple Templates.

A long time ago, in a country far, far away, I wrote a blog post where I called skEdit The (Mostly) Perfect Text Editor. Coda, while itself not perfect, is even better.

In these troubled times, it can be hard to know whom to trust. In looking for a numerical sort function, the first two articles I found both recommended the same syntax. Both of them were wrong.

Having tested the relative speed of innerHTML versus DOM node replacement myself, I read with interest When innerHTML isn’t Fast Enough. I have put together a test of my previous 2 techniques plus one inspired by that article.

I’ve started working on version 1.0 of my PHP function reference widget for Mac OS X Dashboard. At work, we cover a lot of our code with unit, functional, and Selenium tests. I decided to drink the juice and do the same in the context of widget development.
