Web Developer Humour

If you’re using Netscape (any version), Mozilla Browser or Firebird, type in “about:mozilla” into the address bar for a little easter egg.

Oh, and if you’re using Internet Explorer, try this one: type “about:anything” and notice how the error screen looks like an error screen. Then type “about:mozilla”, and notice the difference. It’s Microsoft’s subtle way of telling you Netscape causes blue screen crashes!

Web Developers

If you’re a web developer/designer, and have been around long enough, have you ever wondered how the infamous Netscape <blink> tag came about? Well, here’s the story:

And the beast shall come forth surrounded by a roiling cloud of vengeance. The house of the unbelievers shall be razed and they shall be scorched to the earth. Their tags shall blink until the end of days.

— The Book of Mozilla, 12:10

In response to the death of Netscape:

And they watched as the beast cast off its chains, and with a terrible roar burst forth and slew those who had bound it. And for days the rivers ran red with their lifeblood.

— from The Book of Mozilla, 7:15

Contrary to popular belief, developers have a great sense of humour!

I love to read and write. Professionally, data science, technology, and sales ops are my thing. In my non-professional life, I aspire quite simply to be a good person, and encourage others to do the same. For those who care, I test as INFJ/INTJ (55/45?) in the MBTI.
