  • Patrick McManus: Proxy Connecitons over TLS - Firefox 33

    There have been a bunch of interesting developments over the past few months in Mozilla Platform Networking that will be news to some folks. I've been remiss in not noting them here. I'll start with the proxying over TLS feature. It landed as part of Firefox 33, which is the current release.This feature is from bug 378637 and is sometimes known as HTTPS proxying. I find that naming a bit ambigous - the feature is about connecting to your proxy server over HTTPS but it supports proxying for both http:// and https:// resources (as well as ftp://, ws://, and ws:/// for that matter).

  • In search of the perfect JavaScript framework

    Nowadays, in front-end development, we have many frameworks and libraries. Some of them are good, some of them are not. Often we only like a particular concept, module or maybe a certain syntax. The truth is that there is no universal instrument. This article is about the future framework — the framework that does not exist yet. I’ve summarized the pros and cons of some of the available JavaScript frameworks and I dare to dream about the perfect solution. Abstraction is dangerous We all like simple tools. Complexity kills.

    Opera Mini running on a Chromebook Opera Mini installing on Chrome OS This summer Google previewed a way to run Android applications on Chromebooks using ARC — App Runtime for Chrome. At this time there are only a handful of applications that work on Chrome OS through official channels. However, there are tools and workarounds that allow users to run their favorite Android applications on Chromebooks. One of the applications that works well on Chrome OS is the Opera Mini browser. It might sound a bit insane at first — why would you want to run a browser inside of a browser? Beside the…

    20 Nov 2014 | 6:45 am
    Mercurial and Git both experience scaling pains as the number of heads in a repository approaches infinity. Operations like push and pull slow to a crawl and everyone gets frustrated. This is the problem Mozilla's Try repository has been dealing with for years. We know the solution doesn't scale. But we've been content kicking the can by resetting the repository (blowing away data) to make the symptoms temporarily go away. One of my official goals is to ship a scalable Try solution by the end of 2014. Today, I believe I finally have enough code cobbled together to produce a…
