Author: Anil Radhakrishna. Publisher: Anil Radhakrishna.This article is a point-form beginner’s guide to cloud computing, written in Q&A format. Not everything is as cut-and-dried as the article implies, but it is a good ramp-up for anyone who is just starting down the path of cloud computing and software as a service (SaaS).
Author: daleV. Publisher: Geek Gumbo.As Chrome takes the lead away from Firefox, this article laments Chrome’s memory usage and its developer tools’ ease of use. Some performance specs are provided. Since DOM/CSS performance seems to be critical in many cases, I was surprised to see that both Chrome and Firefox were left in the dust in this category. Can you guess which browser beat them out? [P.S. – I love the image at the top!]
Author: Stoyan Stefanov. Publisher: Stoyan Stefanov.This article revisits a 5-year-old tip that warned us that media=”print” blocks rendering even though the stylesheet to which it applies is not used until after the page is fully rendered.

Warren wrote his first computer program in 1970 (yes, it was Fortran). He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Waterloo and his Bachelor of Computer Science degree at the University of Windsor. After a few years at IBM, he worked on a Master of Mathematics (Computer Science) degree at the University of Waterloo. He decided to stay home to take care of his newborn son rather than complete that degree. That decision cost him his career, but he would gladly make the same decision again. Warren is now retired, but he finds it hard to do nothing, so he writes web performance articles for the Monitor.Us blog. Life is good!
