jQuery Mobile overview

jQuery Mobile

jQuery Mobile is the most broadly compatible HTML5 library for building web sites and apps and we've very proud of our commitment to accessibility, universal access, and staying true to the principles of the web. For anyone who needs to reach the greatest number of people worldwide, our broad support for all popular platforms is a distinct advantage.In Beta 1, we've added support for both Blackberry 5 devices and Opera Mini in Beta 1 which dramatically increases the reach of the framework. Both of these platforms had issues with handling the Ajax-based navigation so they receive a B grade experience with all the enhancements except for Ajax navigation.

With the use of more and more of smartphones and tablets, giving visibility and notoriety to your mobile site has become indispensable.

The problem with mobiles, and the webmaster who already snapped up the hair with four or five browsers are well aware, is that the multitude of phones and smartphones as well as the many resolutions do not make available development very easy.

Fortunately, jQuery Mobile will get you out of this mess.

HTML5, CSS3, nothing has been forgotten in this beta very promising.

Cufon, fonts for your website

cufonCufón aims to become a worthy alternative to sIFR, which despite its merits still remains painfully tricky to set up and use. To achieve this ambitious goal the following requirements were set:

  • No plug-ins required – it can only use features natively supported by the client
  • Compatibility – it has to work on every major browser on the market
  • Ease of use – no or near-zero configuration needed for standard use cases
  • Speed – it has to be fast, even for sufficiently large amounts of text

Browser support: IE 6,7,8 and 9 - Firefox 1.5+ - Chrome - Safari 3+ - Opera 9+ - iOS - Webkit

How it works

Cufon.replace('h1', { fontFamily: 'Vegur' });

Cufon.replace('h2', { fontFamily: 'Myriad Pro' });

<h1>This text will be shown in Vegur.</h1>

<h2>This text will be shown in Myriad Pro.</h2>

Enjoy here !
