The end of Flash?

Friday, July 17th, 2015

The end of FlashDo you remember when Steve Jobs wrote an open letter on the security issues of Flash? That was way back in 2010.

Guess others should have listened to him while he was alive because Flash remained bug ridden over the years and many hackers have taken mean advantage.

iPhones never supported Flash. Android smartphones don’t either (they did initially though!). YouTube parted ways with Flash in January 2015.  Now, if you are a Firefox user you would have noticed that the Flash plugin has been blocked by default. YouTube videos may also not play if you have not selected the HTML 5 player.  If that’s the case, you can rectify the issue by visiting the following URL:

All this mess, and you still find some Sri Lankan clients wanting Flash on their new website… Aiyo!  Kata kiyannada??

Sorting HTML tables with Firefox

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

TableTools2Recently, a client wanted an existing HTML table sorted differently. I have laboured on this type of work before but when the requested table was several rows long, I was sure that I was in for a tedious task!

After googling, I came across this superb Firefox add-on that does the sorting of tables by simply right-clicking on any of the cells.  The add-on is called TableTools2 and works like a charm. See:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/tabletools2/

So what did I do after the installation?  Basically, I looked at the new order in which my client wanted the table sorted and then took the existing table offline and added a few letters in the first column. I then opened it on Firefox and right-clicked the new table and voilà, TableTools sorted it for me!  Once sorted, I copied the source code and uploaded it online.

Saved me several hours for sure!
