Are you a web developer? Then VisiBone is for you

I bought the A4 VisiBone Browser Book from and have been using it now for about a month. How did I survive without it before?

Usually when I forget how a selector CSS works I usually go to Google and sift through a few different sites until I find what I'm looking for. Or if I forget how a JavaScript function works I pick up my 800 pages big JavaScript The Definitive Guide from O'Reilly. So many times I've searched Google for html entity chart to look up the code for å. Don't get me started on scanning the web for a decent DOM tree chart (none found so far actually) or various boring tutorials for how to do regular expressions in JavaScript.

My VisiBone Browser Book is 16 dense pages with web colours, fonts, characters, XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, DOM and Regular Expressions. It's always one arm-reach away from my work computer. Another great feature is that the listings of tags, CSS declarations and DOM is speckled with little footnote icons such as "Obsolete", "Not supported by IE5 on the Mac" or "Opera bug". This is incredibly valuable. When I received my copy and sat down reading it (or rather, staring at it) for an hour. That alone taught me so much and I'm now probably faster at finding things between the 16 pages.

I don't work VisiBone and I get nothing for promoting their product but VisiBone is run by a single person and he's doing a great job and deserves a lot of credit. When you receive your copy you'll see why.
