Growing with the Web



So I was wondering for a while exactly what the performance difference is between the jQuery function attr('id') and getting the native JavaScript object and grabbing the id that way was. Surely attr('id') was slower but how much slower… I decided to write a little HTML page that tested each method by doing 1 million operations of each. In interest of being complete I added the getAttribute and get(0).id methods also.

Redesign #1


I decided to give the blog a major overhaul and redesign the template as previously it was just using a one of the built-in Blogger templates with a few minor alterations. I was originally quite hesitant in modifying the template directly as I didn’t really understand how it was put together, the blog has been in place for some time now so I thought it was about time to give it a go.
