Last Web Page Update (IE is good for something!!!)

I needed to know when a website was last updated…so I dug around online and on this page:

I found out this works (seems to not work in Chrome but will in IE.):

  1. Dig around for that long-lost IE icon and click it.
  2. Open a web page
  3. In the address bar, replace the full address with: javascript:alert(document.lastModified)
  4. Hit enter and you will get a pop up with date info

 

CSS3: The Wonder Years

If you build websites, CSS3 is slap-awesome.  Rounded corners, gradients, transparencies, drop shadows…oh my!

As we know though the good ol’ “red headed step child yet still mamas favorite”, Internet Explorer doesn’t do these things.  Well, correction, IE9, which has recently dropped, does do some of the cool new stuff.  But as of right now a lot of IE users are still on 7 or 8…some even on 6 (Egads!)

If you are building with IE in mind and want all those cool roundy boxes and droppy shadows, here are a couple of links that will help you  get those on IE:
