Future content on Enjifi

Today I sat down and thought about some of the new content I am going to introduce to Enjifi, and I have a few ideas:

  • HTML5
  • I’ve been thinking about bringing in guest authors and interviews.
  • I may include summary videos for posts that have a large amount of content.
  • e-books
  • Paid access
  • And, a special surprise

HTML5

Lately I have been researching and basically consuming knowledge on HTML5. Soon I hope to publish some posts on my process, the content I am focusing on, and the changes that might come because of it.

Future Paid Access

Don’t worry, I am not going to charge you…well actually I am- but only on really really old content. After a while posts start getting old, but they are still relevant for some people, although they’re outdated to me. Like, fixes and hacks to old software nobody uses anymore. The idea is that, on old posts, I may charge for access to that very old clunky post, like 1 cent. Or, I may give you access to it 3 times, then charge you for accessing it again, like 1 cent.

e-books

Obviously a lot of information from this website can be picked out and plunged into an e-book. I do plan on charging for some e-books, but only, say a dollar. I am considering myself as a base, and once an e-book hits $8 I start getting really dis-interested.

Special Surprise

Well, you’ll just have to wait for that one… Hint: Chrome

Webkit, Chrome, Gecko, Oh My!

Right now I am in Google Chrome (for Linux, on Ubuntu 9.10) and it runs so much faster. It is incredible the kind of heavy “aura” Firefox creates vs. practically any browser that runs Webkit (even Epiphany). I like fast, light, simple browsers that are concerned with making the web “just work.” Chrome does this in a variety of ways, and for those who use it, they know what I am talking about.

Lately, I have been griping about offline access to information and offline apps and pages. I’ve been looking more into HTML5, and it looks like that is where they are headed (those people are so dang smart). But, as of now, on Linux, in a Webkit browser (Chrome), I can’t use [say] Google Calendar offline. I can use when online, and it runs like a dream. But, I can’t really run it offline. Firefox is so slow and clunky, not to mention a resource hog, that just watching a movie or loading up Gmail or Google Calendar takes a while. (Don’t worry, I’m still happy the 56k days are behind us.)

But, for now I have made Chrome my default browser and will use Firefox to load up Google Calendar and the like (using Gears) when I am offline. But, I thought I would just talk a little bit about how immensely comforting it is to be in a Webkit browser! I’m not sure if there is really anything wrong with this – I mean, thanks Firefox for still being there for me when it comes to features and plugins.

Sometimes I wish Firefox would just move to Webkit. (Although, I do realize what a pain that would be.)
