Thanks to a collaboration effort from many big players in this type of websites, you will be seeing 1 instead of 2 when you visit them using Firefox. 1 is also being standardized, so just like 2, you may see it on a day to day basis on any standards compliant browser in the near future.

Which type of websites are we talking about?

1. 2.

Yesterday’s final question of the theme round marked the 300th post on Boiledbeans! In fact, the theme round was a way to celebrate this.

It has been an amazing 300 days for us. We have loved every bit of it.
Tell us what you think of Boiledbeans, What you would like to see in the future and what would make you come back to Boiledbeans over and over again.

Please leave it as a comment to this post.

What we would like to see from you guys is more participation in the form of guest questions. That way, Boiledbeans will have a wide variety of content.

Again, thanks for coming back and keep telling your friends about Boiledbeans!
