    WebStorm 5 IDE provides powerful editing features and instant feedback for Web developers

    Posted November 14, 2012 - 3:45 pm

    One of the great things about developing for the Web is the low barrier to entry. Many tutorials are available online, and you can learn about CSS and HTML from any website just by inspecting its code in any modern Web browser. Best of all, when it's time to start coding, any plain text editor--even Notepad--can do the job. So why should you spend $49 on WebStorm, a development environment for JavaScript, HTML, and CSS? The answer is that it might turn you into a better developer.

All it takes is a few extra tags to rewrite the world's software as a Web page.

    Opera 12: a work in progress finally shows real improvements

    Posted July 14, 2012 - 7:45 am

    If Opera 11.5 ( Macworld rated 3 out of 5 mice ) was a browser that wanted to be an operating system, Opera 12 happily seems to abandon that dream. This free, open-source browser’s designers are shedding the nifty but pointless bells and whistles that made previous versions so charmingly eccentric and overstuffed. In their place, Opera 12 takes a respectable stab at assembling a finely focused modern browser.
