CSS grids, frameworks and boilerplates

I thought it’s about time to pick a ‘favorite’ css grid (not framework nor boilerplate). I’ve used the grid from foundation (version 3) a couple of times and I liked it, but I figured that it should be worth the while to look what else is there – turns out, quite a lot.

jQuery deferred

The Deferred object has been in jQuery since version 1.5 but I haven’t had the chance to get to know it until recently – turns out that it’s rather handy to have in your toolset.

QUnit

Another handy javascript lib for your toolbox, but this time, for a slightly different purpose than usual – unit testing

Web sockets

Web socket is a technology developed to establish a bi-directional communication between client and server, over the web. It works on top of TCP and hopefully will render hacks like long polling obsolete. It’s supported by all modern browsers with 2 exceptions – opera mini and the default android browser (chart can be found here).
