JSNES: A Nintendo Emulator Built in JavaScript

I remember, not too long ago, arguing with people who said that JavaScript would never be as good as Flash. Granted, at the time many people were afraid of JavaScript and, thus, it wasn't used as widely as it is today. With the introduction of popular libraries such as jQuery, Prototype, MooTools and many, many, many others, JavaScript has been on the forefront of the Web 2.0 movement. In fact, it's rare today to visit a webpage that doesn't use JavaScript for at least something. Sure, Flash is still pretty popular, but trends seem to indicate that people are moving further away from it for design and reserving it for videos, file uploaders, online games, and high level web-based applications.

Netscape Support Ending in February 2008

On December 28th, 2007, the Netscape Blog announced that AOL is ending support for Netscape web browsers effective February 1, 2008.

Nevertheless, it is upsetting to see what was once the technical leader among web browsers become a thing of the past.

Google Reader

I've always been a fan of Google. Since the first time I heard the name, which immediately reminded me of an infant trying to learn how to speak, I was impressed by the simplicity of their page design and the accuracy of their search results. The addition of great services, including Gmail, Google Maps, Google News, Google Documents, Google Photos, and Google Video, make having a Google account more than worthwhile. Yes, in the eyes of millions of fans, including myself, Google has doing everything right so far.
