This is only for blip.tv, but as of now, if you have NoScript set to block Facebook.net, you won't be able to view videos on blip.tv.
Thankfully, there is a feature in NoScript called "surrogate scripts" that allows NoScript to substitute a script stub to make things work on websites even if a given domain is blocked. So all I need to do it write a surrogate script to implement the functions it needs.
It turns out blip.tv doesn't work because a single function is missing: FB.Event.subscribe. So the entire surrogate script is:
I've been playing around with the HTML5 <video> element. This is a test of a script that should - hopefully - use the <video> element first, and then fallback to a Flash player if that isn't available. You may recognize the video as one of the Omnislash Version 5 videos.
I've never really like the concept of operator overloading. I mean, it can make sense in certain cases, but in other cases *cough*iostream*cough* it's just ugly. "<<" should always be "shift left" and shouldn't randomly change to "send to stream."
This may sound kinda silly, but it's possible to make it so that the middle mouse doesn't do what it does in X - namely, paste whatever you selected.
The problem with Firefox is that, frequently, this means you'll be going to some random website. When you type random text into the URL bar, Firefox will run a Google "I'm Feeling Lucky" search on it - effectively taking you to whatever the first result is.
This is kinda cool, in that you can actually find the right website you want by doing this occasionally (try "news for nerds" some time), but if you've got something random selected (text you just deleted, some weird command), you'll wind up going someplace completely random.
Bruce Perens gave a talk where I work today on the topic of Open Source in the business place. One of the topics that came up was Firefox, where he mentioned that the next version of Internet Explorer and that they took that from Firefox. (Some might disagree about where they stole it from...)
Anyway, I got to thinking. As hinted above, tabbed browsing really wasn't an open source innovation. But what really is has to be Firefox's extension mechanism.
I have a love-hate relationship with XUL. There are some things I'd do differently, but ultimately, the ability to add cross-platform features to the browser UI via XUL overlays is an extremely powerful ability.
