Edge Web Fonts just got a new home last week so I thought I should invite you all to its new home party. What’s the address? Here it is: https://edgewebfonts.adobe.com/fonts
The new website makes easier to find the right font; you can quickly sort the available fonts by language support, font type, or heading/paragraph suitability. Have fun!
I’ve just registered and grabbed my 2013 Adobe MAX badge. As I was staying in line waiting for my turn, I realised that this is actually my 7th Adobe MAX conference.
For me it all started in 2007 when I went to Adobe MAX Europe in Barcelona. Back then I was an engineer working on Flash [...]
The Test the Web Forward conference has been growing steadly during the last year or so. It all started in San Francisco and from there it moved to the East, hitting Europe and Australia. Now it is Japan’s turn.
On June 7th and 8th, in Tokyo, at Google’s office you’ll have a chance to be part [...]
I’ve just found out who is going to co-present this year’s Sneak Peeks at Adobe MAX. Actually it is not one celebrity but two. We will have Rainn Wilson and Mary Lynn Rajskub.
Last time, Rainn was just awesome. I guess it can only get better – we will get the perfect warm up before [...]
I’m extremely happy to announce the availability of the second public preview of Edge Reflow – the light-weight tool for designing responsive websites “in the browser” style.
In case you’re wondering what’s new, here is the list:
Enhanced layout capabilities. Now you can use fixed, absolute, relative, or static and you can control the Z-index
In-line text styling
I am excited to share this great news: CSS Exclusions and Shapes has reached a new milestone. Now you can use the shape-outside attribute to punch holes into your text. These can be circles, elipses, rounded rectangles, and polygons.
Here is an example of what you can do with this feature:
The CSS for the example above [...]

I bet that on April 12th and 13th it will raining a lot in Seattle. So why not join the [...]

Gradients, CSS filters, Edge Web Fonts integration, and more . Blogpost here.

New Product Manager in the person of [...]
My dear reader please welcome the first public preview of a new tool for designing Responsive Web Design websites called Edge Reflow (part of the Creative Cloud offering). While many of you might have seen this tool presented at one of the Create The Web events we’ve been doing for the past four months, this [...]

This post is not about technology so here is your chance to let this pass by and do something else. You’ve been warned
Around this time of the year I started my journey at Adobe, nine years ago. And what a journey it has been so far! I started as an engineer on a team that [...]
This post assumes that you know what the CSS Regions proposal does and you have a basic knowledge of its syntax. If you [...]
Planning the work
Before writing a single line of code I’ve spent a lot of [...]
I am very happy (and proud ) to announce that we’ve finally made CSS Regions polyfil public. This was something I’ve been working on together with my colleague Razvan Caliman and frankly we couldn’t wait to see it run freely in the wild.
Last year some German dudes (Anselm Hannemann, Andre Jay Meissner, and Christian Schaefer) had an idea to organize a bit more the “open device lab” movement.
I guess it is only normal to have this “thing” coming from the Germans. It totally makes sense, doesn’t it? We could make fun about this all day long but at [...]
On February 21-22 the second annual Web3Conf will be held in San Francisco at the Regency Center. If you do “web” and you live just around the corner then you really don’t have any excuse for not getting to the conference.
We even have a gift for you, if you register now and use the promo [...]
After three successful events in 2012 on three different continents, Test the web forward conference is moving to unconquered territories, Down Under in summery Australia, which I reckon is very good.
If you are a poor soul living in the Northern hemisphere in a place that is under snow right now, then here is the perfect [...]
My first (and only one so far argh) commit to Brackets was about adding support for deleting the current line or current selection by using a shortcut. Once the Brackets team was OK with my code they suggested me that I expose this in the “Edit” menu as well to help with the discoverability of [...]
If your work targets the web then it is almost impossible not to hear something like this: ”Man, the standards are moving so slow!” every now and then. Usually this introductory statement is followed by a second part that you wouldn’t say in front of your mom/dad/children.
Basically, the belief is that if there were enough [...]
My friends from the community translation team at Adobe have finally released their Adobe Translation Center for the rest of the world today. I am happy for them and I think it is something you will love too, especially if there are Adobe products that are not available in your language.
So why is Adobe Translation [...]
In October the CSS Exclusions feature made it for the first time in a browser nightly build. If you have Canary and you enable the experimental WebKit features flag then you can actually play with this feature (about:flags and then find ‘Experimental WebKit features’ flag and enable it; don’t forget to restart the browser).
So what [...]
