This Week in Web Tech #3
Each week we post links about web tech and design to our Twitter feed. Once a week, we aggregate those links into a post we like to call This Week in Web Tech.
I decided to move these posts to Monday because it's nice to have something to read to kick off the week and Friday afternoons aren't exactly prime link- surfing time. So welcome to TWIWT in its new time slot!
- The Mozilla Developer Network launched a revamped version last week and it's mighty nice!
