Yay, no prefixes in the CSS! They seem pretty adamant about it. I really hope it works out well and becomes the standard to you know… use the standards.

Nice writeup (of a writeup) on how WebKit monoculture (Chrome, Safari, Opera and their mobile counterparts, along with some other lesser used browsers) all having WebKit as their underlying structure.
It turns out that Opera is coming over to the same core that powers Chrome and Safari — WebKit. This is great for web standards, and great for the WebKit project, as the Opera developers will now be contributing to that open source project as well.
Hat tip, Ben. I echo his sentiment. Who knew Opera had 300 million users?
Everyone who’s dabbled at all in CSS is quite familiar with relative, absolute and fixed positioning. It seems though that WebKit is introducing a new one: “sticky.” I’ll be interested to see if this ends up getting wider support and gains any momentum.
Guess I don’t have this discerning of an eye, but interesting that the webkit-based browsers are “duller.”
CSS 3D Transforms are really starting to take hold. People are really starting to dig into them, utilizing them for cool effects in their web pages and web applications. Part of this dig in is people getting time to play with and experiment with, but I think a bigger part is that what was a WebKit exclusive for quite awhile, now has Firefox support as well.
This is the second post I’ve made this week so far where someone is upping the ante with visual effects on a web page via CSS3′s transforms, with a little jQuery sprinkled in.
This one replicates the Apple login form, having the login form on one “side,” with the forgot login/password on the other side. Nice effect.
Meant to post about this before the weekend. I posted a link via Twitter, but I wholeheartedly think the web shouldn’t revolve a single browser (or two based on the same engine). Web standards exist for a reason, and are a goal for the whole web.
Some of the things that Webkit are introducing are great, can be utilized as things that are added to the spec, but until they are part of the spec, they’re not much use to any self-respecting real world web designer or developer.
Nice writeup on efficiency of CSS selectors in your style sheets in WebKit-based browsers (Chrome, Safari, etc.)
So far, this will only work in WebKit-based web browsers, but it’s cool nonetheless. The only thing that’s kind of weird to me is in the fullscreen demo, there’s no way to transition to the next image without getting out of fullscreen first. I can think of applications where this makes sense, but also can think of more where the nav would be desirable while in fullscreen image viewing.
