web.dev: Review performance and get detailed guidance on how to improve it.

What is web.dev?
web.dev is the ultimate resource for developers of all backgrounds to learn, create, and solve on the web. It’s meant to not only educate developers, but help them apply what they’ve learned to any site they work on, be it personal or business.

web.dev was borne of a belief that if we make high quality experiences easy to build, it will enable more meaningful engagement on the web—for users and developers alike. Simply put, we realized the only way the web gets better is if we help the people building it succeed.

And the web can be better.

samy.pl: evercookie – virtually irrevocable persistent cookies
evercookie is a javascript API available that produces extremely persistent cookies in a browser. Its goal is to identify a client even after they’ve removed standard cookies, Flash cookies (Local Shared Objects or LSOs), and others. evercookie accomplishes this by storing the cookie data in several types of storage mechanisms that are available on the local browser. Additionally, if evercookie has found the user has removed any of the types of cookies in question, it recreates them using each mechanism available. Specifically, when creating a new cookie, it uses the following storage mechanisms when available: – Standard HTTP Cookies – Local Shared Objects (Flash Cookies) – Silverlight Isolated Storage – Storing cookies in RGB values of auto-generated, force-cached PNGs using HTML5 Canvas tag to read pixels (cookies) back out – Storing cookies in Web History – Storing cookies in HTTP ETags

cronjobservices.com: Online Cron Job Services
Online cron services get listed here! Webcron (or online cron service) brings huge convenience to users on quickly setting up cron job to trigger periodical tasks. Applicable situations include: In some hosting plans, cron job is prohibited or limited for resource effectiveness concern. Too many cron jobs causes unstability on web server. Decoupling cron job from the web server becomes a must. On cloud infrastructure, webmaster needs to move cron job to a persistence layer (independent server outside of web server). Users without strong linux or cron knowledge need easy-to-master way to manage cron jobs, track cron job’s executions, etc.. Users may need additional features like random cron job, cookie and post method support, run time predicting etc.. When managing huge amount of cron jobs, bulk handling capacity could save much time.

The Responsinator

The Responsinator

What is Responsinator?

Responsinator helps website makers quickly get an indication of how their responsive site will look on the most popular devices. It does not precisely replicate how it will look, for accurate testing always test on the real devices.

We recommend using Chrome on OSX 10.7+ with scroll bars set to “when scrolling” (System Preferences › General › Show scroll bars › “when scrolling”). This means the device widths aren’t affected by scroll bars.

Pro tip: append &scroll=ext to move the scroll bars outside of the device frame.

It means designing your website to adapt to the user’s viewing environment (mobile, tablet, laptop etc.). It does this through the use of media queries, and other clever technology. Ethan Marcotte wrote the original article about it, and a pretty handy book.

Drag this: Responsinator to your browser’s bookmark bar then click it when you’re on a site you want to test (thanks to @pixelcellar for originally creating this).

Include &scroll=ext in bookmarklet
Tama Pugsley and Andy Hovey. We both work at Batch. If you found The Responsinator handy and you’re feeling kind you could buy us a beer.

We’re hosted on Linode.com (sign up and we’ll get $20).
