It’s no secret that Moonlight works best on Firefox at the moment - it’s our baseline browser, after all - but we’ve had many requests to add Chrome support, and since it supports NPAPI just like all browsers out there, it should really work out of the box, requiring only some extra code to implement/hackify stuff that Chrome/WebKit doesn’t expose and that we need - basically, DOM support and some downloader tweaks.
First off, Moonlight news: 2.0 is almost upon us (or upon you, in any case). The official release date is not set yet, but it is going to be in the next two weeks, so if you have bugs that need fixing for the release, speak now or forever hold your peace. Well, not forever forever… you know what I mean :)
A simple phone This week I got supremely frustrated with my phone(s).
For the past week I’ve been doing the Google Wave dance. First impressions are, it’s a really interesting mashup of different messaging/content concepts - Wiki meets IM meets Email threading - but it’s way too cluttered. The social web evolution tells us that simpler is better, services tend to be straightforward, simple, uncluttered, fast. Google’s own web page was a hit precisely because it was simple, clean and to the point, Twitter and all related services are the same thing.
