Rainbow Library - Man-made Rainbows

I love the rainbow stuff she posts up on 'Things Organized Neatly' so I'm gonna start my own Man-made Rainbows thread...
My sister always used to take all her pencils out of the Caran D'Ache box (starting with the 10 pack aged 7 and working up to 50 or so aged c.13) and organise them in different colour orders, usually based on the rainbow.  I guess the fascination rubbed off...

Browser Sizes

Just found this pretty neat feature from Google Labs - a web 'mask' showing usage percentages for browser window sizes.

Pretty useful tool for us website designers! I'd say it looks like optimising your website design for c. 1000x550px resolution is a happy medium (at the moment) of usability over design possibilities...  Although some would say you should make your site available to absolutely everyone!

There's also useful raw chronological browser stats including size, operating system, browser, from W3 Schools

New Web Browsers

I've been test driving the new browser based on Firefox called 'Flock'.  It features a sidebar where you can load integrated social media (FaceBook, Twitter), RSS feeds, Email and much more.

Also excited to try 'Rock Melt' if/when I get an invite via their Facebook page...

Blogged with the Flock Browser
