Relive the ugly years of the Web with IE6ify bookmarklet

People often forget just how much of a monopolistic juggernaut Microsoft once was: Internet Explorer 6, at its peak in 2004, thanks to its bundling with Windows XP, was used by almost 90% of Web surfers. Then a little miracle happened: Firefox 1 launched and IE has lost market share ever since. Today, just 12% of Internet surfers still use IE6 -- mostly thanks to China, South Korea and other...

Mozilla's P2PU 'School of Webcraft' gearing up for another semester of nerdy teaching

It turns out Barney isn't the only dinosaur interested in education -- Mozilla (with its own Dinosaur) is ramping up the course count in its online education program, delivered via P2PU. 'The School of Webcraft' is basically a free online learning community with structured courses about a range of Web-related subjects, from HTML5, through JavaScript, all the way to social media management and...

WordPress introduces new HTML5 sandbox theme, calls out to CSS artists

By now, I hope you've felt the early rumblings of an HTML5 revolution. It's still early days, however; most HTML5 sites are tests, or niche Web apps that only a small fraction of surfers will use. What HTML5 really needs is a huge, pipe-hitting champion; a website that grabs HTML5 by the gonads and slams it down front and center. A champion such as WordPress, for example, which has just released...

Buildor Pro Web-authoring tool invites 300 Download Squad readers to early beta

Buildor Pro is a fantastic authoring tool for Web developers. It lets you inspect and tweak each element on an existing page -- much like Firebug, in a way, but not exactly. You can also use it to create entirely new designs and very quick mock-ups. What's interesting about it is that it manages to be browser-based and visual at the same time. Of course, coders don't always like to do everything...

24 Ways, the geeky Web developer advent calendar, is back for 2010

Back for its sixth year and as nerdy as ever, 24 ways gives you a delicious daily dose of design and development between the 1st and 24th of December. Almost every article has something to do with CSS or HTML, and it's definitely not targeted at beginners -- but if you work with websites, or you know someone that does, 24 ways is a must-read. The archives are fantastic, too, if only to see the...

Komodo Edit 6 is now out, based on Firefox 3.5 sources

I'm a big fan of Komodo Edit for editing PHP, HTML and other code. And now, Komodo Edit 6 is officially out! Komodo Edit 6 has been in Beta for quite some time, and I've been using the Beta versions for months. This release means Edit's older brother, Komodo IDE, also made it to version 6. Some of what version 6 brings to the table: Faster performance, since it's based on Firefox 3.5 -- It's...

Mozilla Labs launches its first Open Web Games competition: Game On 2010

After teasing us earlier this month, Mozilla Labs has now opened its doors on the Game On 2010 competition. Other than the stipulation that the front-end of the game uses only Open Web technologies -- HTML, CSS, and JavaScript -- anything goes. No plug-ins or add-ons can be used, but the back-end server-side portion, if the game requires it, can be written in any language. Games will be...

CodeBurner puts Web language reference information at your fingertips

CodeBurner is a neat tool for rapidly checking a ton of CSS and HTML reference information, including compatibility, functionality, and more. It's available as a Firefox add-on or a Firebug plug-in, and as an Adobe AIR application, OS X Dashboard Widget, or Opera add-on. I tested the Firebug variant, because I use Firebug for all of my Web debugging needs. And indeed, CodeBurner adds a nice,...

ProCSSor is a slick, powerful CSS beautifier

If there's one thing that I dislike about other people's CSS, it's how messy it can be. Seriously... Some people just do whatever they feel like! There's no order or convention. If you feel the same way, ProCSSor may come in handy the next time you have to tweak someone else's layout. It may be someone who doesn't take the same meticulous care that you do to align all the braces just so and sort...

Hide or move the orange button in Firefox 4 (updated)

With the release of the latest Firefox 4 beta build, the original userChrome.css hack fails to remove the big, orange menu button. Fortunately, Download Squad commenter poiru pointed out a thread on the Rainmeter forums that provides some working CSS! If you know what you're doing, head over to that thread and copy the CSS -- if not, read on for some instructions! Open Firefox 4 beta 5 (or...

CSS 3.0 Maker helps you visually create next-gen CSS

Another day, another CSS3 playground. Are you excited yet? Wait for it – this one has wood paneling for a background! (That's classy!) Even though it's not exactly the first tool of its kind (or the second, ... or the tenth), CSS 3.0 Maker is pretty handy and comprehensive, so I decided it was worth covering. Let me quickly sum it up: I like: That it provides clear compatibility...

FontFonter lets you preview a website with FontShop's commercial fonts

FontFonter is a neat tool from FontShop that lets you render a live copy of any Web page using FontShop's proprietary Web fonts. Font prices are in the hundreds of dollars (the "affordable" ones are around the $150 mark), so it's certainly nice to be able to preview what your site will look like with such a font before spending all of that money. It would be truly great (and magnanimous, even)...

Make Firefox 4's UI slimmer than Google Chrome - no add-ons required!

Since the release of the Firefox 4 beta, I've been happily using it as my default Web browser once again. Google Chrome had been my primary browser for quite some time, but Firefox 4's improved speed and the fact that it can do three things I've wished Chrome could do for ages have won me back. The three things? A real download manager (plus great add-on options like DownThemAll and Automatic...

Remove Firefox 4.0's big, ugly, unmovable orange button

Update: this no longer works with more recent builds of the Firefox 4 beta. Please see our new post on how to move or remove the button. Yup, you're not alone: that orange button in the top left corner of Firefox 4.0 just won't move. Fortunately, with the help of a Neowin forum thread and a little hacking, I am now the proud owner of a see-through Firefox button that's in-line with my tabs!...

Button Maker lets you make CSS-only buttons for the Web

Many developers know that technically, you can create CSS-only buttons with rounded corners and nice gradients. Since it's often such a hassle, though, they may not bother with it. Button Maker is a tool that takes all of the hassle out of creating buttons for the Web. Button Maker lets you play with three sliders and some color pickers, and you end up with comprehensive CSS for your...
