I often recommend moving to HTTPS because of all the benefits you get on top of being secure, like HTTP/2 and Service Workers for instance. But what _is_ HTTPS really? Could you explain it to someone if they asked you the question? Like really explain it? Take 5 minutes and you’ll be an expert!
In the excitement and anticipation of Santa coming to visit I missed the Safari Technology Preview #46 release, and along with it, one of the more exciting bits of news I’ve heard for a while.

I’m really interested in how we can expand our traditional content and our concepts of the browser with VR and AR. My commute this week has been filled mostly with getting a really simple AR going to show the Earth rotating when using the Hiro marker, so this tutorial really interested me with the ability […]
