The Web in 2020: Extensibility and Interoperability

January 22nd, 2020

In the past few years, we’ve seen a lot of change and diversion in regard to web technologies. In 2020, I foresee us as a web community heading toward two major trends/goals: extensibility and interoperability. Let’s break those down.

A fresh way to revisit your online finds in Google Search

January 22nd, 2020

Remember that chicken parmesan recipe you found online last week? Or that rain jacket you discovered when you were researching camping gear? Sometimes when you find something on Search, you’re not quite ready to take the next step, like cooking a meal or making a purchase. And if you’re like me, you might not save…

Edgium

January 21st, 2020

January 15th, 2020 was the day Microsoft Edge went Chromium. A drop in browser engine diversity. There is a strong argument to be made that’s not good for an ecosystem.

The Best Color Functions in CSS?

January 20th, 2020

I’ve said before that HSL is the best color format we have. Most of us aren’t like David DeSandro, who can read hex codes. HSL(a) is Hue, Saturation, Lightness, and alpha, if we need it. hsl(120, 100%, 40%) Hue isn’t intuitive, but it’s not that weird. You take a trip around the color wheel from…

But unlike many other schools, MolenGeek is driven by a social mission of fostering inclusion, integration and community development in this culturally diverse suburb of Brussels.
