    Twtrland got created on the beach. A piece of paper was in the game, a pen and a not exactly quantified amount of coffee. Three brothers from Israel stand behind the service, whose main purpose was to help with the decision whom to follow on Twitter and – well – whom not.

  • Garlic.Js and Sisyphus.Js: These jQuery Plugins Store Form Values With HTML5 LocalStorage

    Website builders Wix.com put together an amusing infographic that reflects what kind of yearbook-type different social networks would be taken for. Do you remember? There have always been the rich man’s daughter, the sporting ace with the red cabriolet, the nerd with the black glasses, one or more hussies and all those gossipers and hearsayers. I suppose things haven’t changed much over the years as Wix.com identifies the exact same characters in our favorite social networks.

    jPanelMenu is only a few days old, but you already know the operating principle from your favorite smartphone or tablet using Android or iOS. Most likely you will use either the Facebook or the Google+ app, which both implement an off-canvas slide-in navigation.
