there are some changes to the website that we would like to tell you about.
1. The old header design ....
Many liked it and some didn't (hah)... Whatever.
As we were waiting for a designer we recently have been working with for a new mockup, Felix had a very cool idea for a new header design which he implemented. The result of it is what you are seeing. The hover effect is going to change a little tomorrow. Any ideas are always welcome. Now is this a design improvement?
2. We added some subscriber-counter to the top right corner right below our "blurb". If you like what we are writing about, you can click on it in order to subscribe to our RSS feed.
3. From now on you can print posts, digg them, stumble them and add them to delicious with some easy links below each post.
4. There is some cool feature now in the comment box I have been working on.
You can now enter the first characters of the name of any person who has commented on the post so far.
Then you hit tab and it completes the name for you.
So this is a very easy means to reply to several people very quickly:
It still needs some tweaking to allow "navigating" through several names that all start with the same chars. As it uses the tab key, it won't work together with the navigation through page elements (that the tab key is normally used for) very well. However, Safari will still focus the next page element.. Oh well.
But hey, if you guys like it, this can be turned into an open source project and receive many more features and feedback.
Oh by the way: I basically stole the idea from Colloquy, one of the famous Mac IRC Clients.
What do you think about the new stuff?
