Save your Pen, share it, and explore others. This is extremely useful for showing off your work, troubleshooting, demonstrating bugs, or anything else you can think of.

Coda 2 and Diet Coda

I don’t use a Mac anymore, but when I did I loved Coda, and I suspect that Coda 2 is even better. I really like the fact that you can use an iPad with Diet Coda as a dedicated preview device.

First commerical use for SPDY

Google’s SPDY is a web protocol designed as an improvement over HTTP.

Website optimization company Strangeloop has built SPDY into its flagship product Site Optimizer, software that sits in between a website and its users, and adjusts the site’s code to make pages load more quickly.

Mainstream adoption may prove difficult for Google; the protocol requires changes to both browsers and server software. Currently, the only browser to support SPDY is Google Chrome.
