Best of JavaScript, HTML5 & CSS3 - Week of December 3, 2012

Posted on Dec 10, 2012

As you can see, this week's update is massive. I thought about cutting it down, but there really weren't any posts I was willing to leave out. Some highlights (in my opinion of course) include Philip Walton on CSS architecture, Nicholas Zakas on localStorage performance, Holly Schinsky on PhoneGap push notifications and the latest sprint build of Brackets.
