In the world of free, pricing isn’t given much attention. But if you’re looking for a real, sustainable business, it’s unavoidable. Paul Farnell’s gone through it all with his app Litmus and breaks it down for you in Vitamin – How to price your web application.

Paul Farnell mentioned that pricing is always somewhat of a black art, and a subject about which there is precious little written with regard to web applications. It’s something he has always been fascinated by. The question of how to price our web application, Litmus, was subject to countless hours of discussion. He will discuss some common factors and hopefully help spark some ideas which can help you decide upon the price of your own application.

Unobtrosive Bubble Tooltips with Javascript and CSS

Posted · Category: License Free, Tooltips

Bubble Tooltips are an easy way to add (via a bit of CSS and javascript) fancy tooltips with a balloon shape to any web page. They operate this way:

  1. A check for DOM support is performed
  2. If found, the title and href attributes of links are extracted from the page and they’re injected into a DOM structure
  3. When the mouse is rolled over a link, the related tooltip (styled with CSS) is displayed

Bubble Tooltips are unobtrosive and for browsers with bad DOM support or javascript disabled, the plain title of links will be displayed. Compatibility is quite good: they’ve been tested with success in IE5, IE5.5 and IE6 on Win, Opera 8.5, Safari 2.0 and Firefox 1.5.


Requirements: Internet Explorer 5.0+, Opera 8.5+, Safari 2.0+, Firefox 1.5+
