As you may have noticed, Hacks looks a bit different today. That’s because we’ve completely redesigned the site. We wanted to make it easier for everyone to not only enjoy the new content we publish, but also to find past articles and demos. With Firefox 3.6 just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to rediscover Hacks!
Thanks go out to Chris Howse for his design expertise, Craig Cook and Matt Harris for their development work, and everyone else that helped out. What a difference a redesign like this can make:
Chris Blizzard started the Hacks blog back in June 2009 as part of the “35 days of Firefox” campaign to give developers a look at the latest features and web technology upgrades that were coming in Firefox 3.5. Since then, we have continued to reach out to web developers and collaborate with them to put together amazing posts.
With a collection of helpful tutorials, updates on web standards, and technology demos, Hacks has become a popular destination for anyone interested in keeping up with innovation on the web. We cover a wide range of topics, including everything from new possibilities with HTML5 to the latest version of Firebug. Developers get to see what is possible on the web today, while everyone gets a glimpse of what the future holds for Firefox and the open web.
Hacks has ignited a renewed focus on web developer outreach and collaboration. In addition to the blog, you can follow us on Twitter, watch videos and demos on YouTube, and even subscribe to the about:hacks newsletter. Our goal is to inform and inspire web developers to help us establish a strong Mozilla Developer Network (MDN).
We have big plans for MDN in 2010, and Hacks v2.0 is just the beginning! Enjoy the new website and please share your thoughts and feedback with us…
Happy New Year!
