Mentoring a Google Summer of Code project

So it seems a project I will be co-mentoring with David C. managed to slip in :-)

David already blogged about this here but I’d like to correct one thing, I don’t see Jaws as a framework per say, it’s not like ZF, eZC, symfony, prado or fellows … i.e. you can’t really rip a component out and use it in a completely other env. well for the most parts anyway, at least that’s how I see it :-) So it’s not yet another framework just like every single one of them.

Useful Firefox extension

I’ve been following a little Firefox extension that Daniel Glazman has been writing for the past weeks called Fullscreen.

What it does it do enchance the fullscreen experience people get by pressing F11 and thus making the usage of online apps like GMail much more, well, readable :)

The idea is that it the ext gets rid of the location/toolbar + tab bar when you are in fullscreen (opposed to what the default behaviour in FF is) plus you can configure couple of things, like wether to show the status bar or not, how close the mouse has to be near the edge to popup the toolbars.

ctrl + l gives you the location bar, ctrl + k gives you the search feature but oddly enough I haven’t gotten it to work yet but well I’m on linux (fedora) using the fedora shipped FF so go figure :)

Anyway do give it a whirl, download it via the mozilla addon page

Just a short note in the end, this could be a great way to give your clients a better way to fully use the screen, give them something to go “woooww” about :) If you get them to use FF + this ext that is
