Sometimes people ask, so to save tweets here’s a quick summary:
Drag this bookmarklet link to your bookmarks bar in Google Chrome, browse to Yahoo! (or any other website) and click the bookmarklet for a bit of whimsy.
This little gem is going to become real annoying real quick. In Safari on iOS 7 clicking anywhere in the bottom ~40px of the screen does not register as a click on the web page as you would expect, instead it prompts Safari to reveal the ‘nav bar’, only then once the ‘nav bar’ has become visible and pushed your content up the page will clicks in that area register. I’ve logged a bug on Radar and Open Radar.
Of course by the time a user has clicked once (which apparently results in something other than that which was expected) and not gotten what they asked for they probably surmise that the link/website is broken and give up on the interaction they were attempting.
And yes, I know… NDA.
Adobe Fireworks is dead
I can’t say I’m surprised to see Adobe kill Fireworks, despite my continuous ranting and raving, despair and campaigning I still have fond memories of what was once a breakthrough application for web designers (back in the Macromedia days).
So what next? Is there a tool out there right now that can replace Fireworks? Not quite – but there ‘are’ some really promising indie apps which get real close. Go invest some of your hard earned cash in one, contribute by telling the developers what works and what doesn’t and bask in that warm feeling you get from using software produced by a company that cares about it’s customers.
