#826: Now That You Mention It

Short one this time — partly to balance out the long one on Monday, and partly because I’m moving on Monday morning, so I need to get these next two done quickly, so I can pack all my shit up.

Those of you on the website will see new sharing icons below. I wanted to replace the inefficient AddThis code I was using with something faster (ShareThis is even slower), so I made little bit of inline SVG+CSS. It uses zero Javascripts and zero linked images and weighs only about 6k, so it is much, much faster. (I don’t get statistics like I would with AddThis, but really, I don’t care about that stuff). It does, however, not play nicely with older browsers that don’t like either inline SVG or base64-encoded transparent PNGs. If that’s the case, much of the rest of the site probably looks jacked up anyway, and you should get a new browser.

If you run a website of your own and would like to use this yourself, I’ve put it up over at Github.
