It seems Firebird has been renamed to Firefox. I’m looking forward to the plug-in that enables you to enter a URL just by thinking in Russian. Update: Jon Hicks implemented the lovely new icons and has posted details of the branding process. Jon also points us…

When inline images are displayed in box with -webkit-border-radius applied to it, the image is not cropped as expected. There is a simple workaround, at least for Safari.
To my surprise, Clagnut.com was last redesigned in September 2008. Well, it’s all change, with a new redesign launched today. It’s been created from the typography outwards, responsive from the beginning and elegant on huge as well as tiny screens.
I’ve been admiring the ‘image loading…’ and subsequent fade-in of (spectacular) photos on Couloir. It seems they use a rather nifty trick to achieve this.
Thanks for your support. I don’t normally get political here at Clagnut, and even less often do I get angry and sweary, so I thought I’d show any new readers what I normally write about, by way of a top ten most visited posts this fortnight.

The media conference this year was as good as ever. Even the queues for coffee and food were quicker this year. I’ve jotted down a few tidbits gleaned from the sessions I attended.
A call out to font foundries to stop fretting about web font embedding and instead make it work in their favour.
I’m proud to have been part of the Web Typography panel at SxSW 2009 alongside Jon Tan, Ian Coyle, Elliot Jay Stocks & Samantha Warren. I’ve jotted down some of the topics we discussed, and some we talked about beforehand but didn’t have time for.
And there are photos. And a list of what’s been happening: Odeon crapsters, AMG retrograde, per-site stylesheets, disabling IE6 imagebar, Mozilla security flaw, Malarkey forms, Colly links, Gmail whitelist, XHTML to RSS and fantasy footie.
