I can't remember the last time a new HTML element came along. Yesterday, <search> shipped in Safari 17.0 (the first browser with support).
You can start using it to build websites TODAY, even when most of your users still don't have support. We explain why & how at the beginning of this article: https://webkit.org/blog/14445/webkit-features-in-safari-17-0/
<p><input type="search" name="q"> <input type="submit" value="Search!"></p>
In the world of images & video, Safari 17.0 includes:
- the `image-set()` arguments `resolution` and `type`.
- JPEG XL
- AV1 on devices with hardware support
- Managed Media Source API (better MSE)
- an overlay for `<video>` that shows media player stats (for developers)
You can now download the visionOS SDK: https://developer.apple.com/news/?id=8sntwknb
Learn how to test your website in the visionOS simulator by watching “Rediscover Safari developer features” from WWDC23:
If you have a pet, please get pet insurance if you don't have lots of disposable cash in case of an emergency. I pay $63 a month for Truth (5 y/o), and $155 a month for strange (12 y/o). Truth had a medical emergency last night, and Trupanion covered 17k without fuss. Absolutely worth it. Happy to answer any questions. https://refer.trupanion.com/cameow-2

Twitter changes its algorithm to boost Russian, Chinese and Iranian state media, because that is what "free speech" is all about
I feel good about the way Poland has stepped up to support Ukraine during Russia’s invasion. But sometimes I see stuff like this and I am ashamed. And I’m happy I live in the US where the First Amendment forbids banning speech just because it offends someone’s feelings. https://notesfrompoland.com/2023/04/21/court-convicts-women-for-offending-religious-feelings-with-rainbow-virgin-mary-at-lgbt-march/
