Submission + - Interesting HTML5 demo with nodejs, iPhone accelerometer->

whoisthis writes: "The demo lets users use their iPhone as a controller for a game on a desktop/laptop browser. An app does not have to be installed on the iOS device to get this to work. The accelerometer values from mobile safari are pushed to the desktop browser using socketio & nodejs."

Submission + - Faster page loads by removing javascript blocking->

web.dev writes: "The blog post compares standard javascript file include method and the script DOM element method in detail. Around 80% of the end-user response time is spent on the front-end. A fair share of this time is spent on downloading components of the page like scripts, Flash, stylesheets, images etc. Javascript takes majority of the loading time of a webpage because scripts block parallel downloading and rendering in the page. Even if you do not have a lot of Javascript files to load on your webpage they can still block loading other content on your page while they load."
