So, a silver-bearded dude in a suit said this: http://www.theverge.com/2013/11/20/5125922/vint-cerf-google-internet-evangelist-says-privacy-may-be-anomaly
proves him right! http://techcrunch.com/2013/11/20/googles-cerf-says-privacy-may-be-an-anomaly-historically-hes-right/
'coz you know, "everyone knows everything about everyone in a small village", and we are now living in "global village", so ... </irony>p.s.: this post is tagged `humor`, but the guy with beard was all serious in his speech ...
And btw, - healthy food, no epidemics, low child mortality and life expentacy above 60 years is also an anomaly, historically

Chrome is the only
browser up to date, which honors plugin opactity setting. Thus, it is succeptible to clickjacking attack, which allows remote site to access the victim's webcam.

This is quite interesting, and in case Opera will keep its own rendering engine (above Chromium), we will have at least 3 different rendering engines for mainstream webkit-based browsers. http://blog.chromium.org/2013/04/blink-rendering-engine-for-chromium.html
Ok, April 1st was two days ago, and it seems like Google and Opera are forking webkit, dropping vendor prefixes and ditching Apple out of the equation ?
Whatever, i don't know, it too late and time to sleep. Will think about it on the weekend. Maybe, there will be more insider comments by that time.

Compilation was a success!
Original Size: 1.06KB (886 bytes gzipped)
Compiled Size: 1.83KB (861 bytes gzipped)
Saved -72.70% off the original size (2.82% off the gzipped size)
agressive inlining that Closure Compiler
does - can produce funny results, like doubling your code size
Because it transforms
var a = 's'; var b = 'z' + a; var c = a;
var b = 'zs';
var c = 's';
and if 's' was base64-url.. you can imagine result.

New Google doodle is a game, to honor Stanislaw Lem. Worth checking out.
p.s: if you don't know who he is - fix it. And enjoy some of his brilliant books
