Open Sources UIs and Design Patterns

If this headline doesn’t reach out and grab you, ignore this post. Yahoo has posted this to their developer network.  If you’re still reading this, you might find this interesting.

The Yahoo! User Interface Library is a set of utilities and controls, written
in JavaScript, for building richly interactive web applications using
techniques such as DOM scripting, HTML and AJAX. The UI Library Utilities
facilitate the implementation of rich client-side features by enhancing
and normalizing the developer’s interface to important elements of the browser
infrastructure (such as events, in-page HTTP requests and the DOM). The
Yahoo UI Library Controls produce visual, interactive user interface elements
on the page with just a few lines of code and an included CSS file. All
the components in the Yahoo! User Interface Library have been released as
open source under a BSD license and are free for all uses.

Google Send to Phone for Firefox

Filed under: Internet, eh? — sparkrobot @ 5:08 pm

Google Text To PhoneGoogle Send to Phone for Firefox is a handy lil’ plugin I just picked up for Firefox which I use as my main browser. Basically it allows you to select text from a browser and send it to your cellphone. Send yourself phone numbers, directions, insults, etc. Slick. Those… Googlers.

Couple of other plugins that are a must have include Web Developer Toolbar, Copy Image, Foxy Tunes and ColorZilla. If you’re not using Firefox, you should be.
