webOS 3.0 beta now available to developers

With the webOS 3.0 SDK available for almost two months, HP has now given developers access to a beta download of webOS 3.0 -- which powers the upcoming TouchPad and will likely ride along on HP desktops and laptops in the form of an emulator. Right now, the webOS 3.0 beta is only available to Early Access developers. The crew at PreCentral states that HP appears to have eased up on access...

Zen Coding high-speed HTML shorthand plug-in updated

Zen Coding made quite a splash when we first covered it almost a year ago. For those who aren't familiar, Zen is a fantastic form of shorthand for quickly hand-coding HTML. And today, a new version is out! Here are some of the goodies version 0.7 brings to the party: Text nodes: Writing something like a[href=/]{Click here} now works, and puts "Click here" within the link. New...

Rdio gets the jump on Spotify with API release, affiliate program

Rdio is a much-beloved streaming music service, and it's got one serious advantage over Spotify at the moment: it's already available in the U.S. So while Americans continue to wait for the arrival of Spotify, Rdio is doing its best to strengthen its position in the marketplace. To that end, Rdio is enlisting the aid of developers by releasing an API for the service and announcing an...

Immersion haptic feedback SDK for Android released

Haptic feedback, which all began with the mythical introduction of the Nintendo Rumble Pak and its use in Star Fox 64 and GoldenEye, is about to get a big boost on the Android platform thanks to the release of the Immersion SDK. Immersion Corporation, which has long provided haptic feedback technology for a variety of other applications, has only really dabbled in video games before. This...

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...

Simures lets you see and share websites in specific resolutions

So, what does your site look like on a tiny mobile device? And what does it look like on a 1024x768 display? Sure, if you're a nerdy Web developer you probably already have a Firefox add-on that resizes your window to the pixel-perfect viewport in the exact dimensions that you require. That's great, but how do you show it to your boss? Simures is the answer. This link leads you to a 570px by...

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...

Fillerati is a wonderful generator for filler text

Slick, sexy and suave are just some of the adjectives that came to mind when I was testing Fillerati. This beautiful little toy is a testament to what one developer can do with modern Web technologies in just 48 hours. Functionally, it's very simple. Instead of generating Lorem Ipsum text for testing your new website or software, it lets you use excerpts from the works of famous (and long-dead)...

Periodic Table of the Elements is a quick, slick HTML5 cheat sheet

HTML5 is here, which means Web developers now have a whole bunch of new tags and elements to play with. The Periodic Table of the Elements is an effective visual map of what the "new HTML" looks like. It's a comprehensive table, too; it contains both existing elements (such as the hyperlink tag, a) and elements that were just introduced in HTML5. Elements are sorted by their function (root...

ColorPicker is a powerhouse JavaScript control for working with color

This one's for the Web developers in the audience. ColorPicker is a very powerful JavaScript ... color picker. Okay, so maybe the name isn't very original (or searchable, for that matter), but it is very descriptive. In the demo shown on the page, ColorPicker pops up as you click a text field that needs to be filled with a color value (think #ff00ff format). But what you get feels like a...

YoxView JavaScript lightbox 2.0 is now out! Skinning, Flash video, and more

YoxView is one of my favorite lightbox implementations. I've used it in the past to show you how to add an awesome Picasa or Flickr slideshow to your website. YoxView's development has progressed by leaps and bounds since then, and version 2.0 brings some interesting improvements to the table, including: Skinning support: I think this one's pretty unique. There's not much chrome to skin on a...

Is Mozilla making a huge mistake by breaking add-ons so badly on Firefox 4?

I'm stoked about Firefox 4; I think many of us are. It's a beautiful browser, and with the addition of Tab Candy (now "Panorama"), it's even cooler. Whenever Mozilla release a new version of Firefox, add-ons break. It's become routine, so nobody's overly worked up about it by now. The Mozilla add-ons site is littered with yesteryear's great extensions, including such crowd pleasers as Hit-a-Hint,...

Google takes measures against malicious Chrome extensions, adds developer fee

With Chrome's Web app store about to launch and Chrome extensions skyrocketing in popularity, a little extra security makes sense. Right now, there's nothing keeping extension developers from introducing malware or using extensions to take over systems. Google is addressing this problem by adding a sign-up fee for developers and running domain verification for Chrome extensions. The fee is a...

Squad is a beautiful text editor for the Web with a great future (hopefully)

Squad (no connection to us) is an interesting collaborative text editor for coders. There are several things I like about it, and several things I don't. Let me count them off real quick: I like: The general look and feel. Stylish! Real-time collaboration a-la Etherpad, but with proper syntax highlighting for JavaScript, HTML, and a bunch of other languages. The product has Pro versions,...

Devcheatsheet catalogs over 1,600 cheat sheets for developers and software users

Non-capitalized website devcheatsheet is a pretty good place to rummage around if you're on the lookout for a free "cheat sheet" for a programming language, markup language, or a piece of software. Some of the "cheat sheets" linked by the site are more "cheat booklets" than "sheets", such as this Essential Ruby RefCard, which stretches on for six pages (!). DevCheatSheet (That's how I decided to...
