Firefox is coming to iOS

Mozilla recently announced that they're finally bringing Firefox to iOS. They'll have to use iOS's built-in rendering engine like everybody else, which begs the question: What makes this Firefox? Time will tell whether they're too late to the game or not. In the meantime, the source code is freely available (and under heavy development). From the README: This is a work in progress on some early ideas. Don't get too attached to this code. Tomorrow everything will be different. Could be a fun project to track, especially if you're interested in Swift.



MetricsGraphics.js uses D3 to visualize time-series data with ease

Speaking of D3, Mozilla open sourced a library they use on top of D3 to visualize time-series data in a "principled, consistent and responsive way." If you're serious about visualizations, you'll still want to learn D3 itself, but it's great when we can optimize and simplify common use cases. That's exactly what MetricsGraphics.js does. Here's a taste: Check out all of the examples of what's possible here:
