Here’s a chart of the past thirty days of activity at AVC.com:

Awesome Screenshot is light-weight, straightforward, and very useful. You use it to take a screenshot of a site’s entire page, or just what you see in your browser window. And you can draw on your screenshot, add notes, crop it down, save it, share it, and more.

In early 2008, Wayne Shea and Tenni Theurer wrote a YUI Blog post on iPhone Cacheability in which they shared the results of research into various characteristics and limitations of Mobile Safari’s cache in iPhone OS 1.x. Among other things, they found that individual components larger than 25KB were not cached, and that there was a maximum total cache size of between 475KB and 500KB.

Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010. Because we're already talking to partners about the project, and we'll soon be working with the open source community, we wanted to share our vision now so everyone understands what we are trying to achieve.
