If you haven’t heard of FOWD, it’s a conference which brings together the web industry’s leading designers and delivers two days of workshops and talks from the likes of Dan Cederholm, Jason Santa Maria, Molly Holzschlag, Joshua Davis, Vimeo and lots more. I have one conference pass to giveaway. Enter a comment in this post before November 3rd, 2009 for your chance to win a ticket.

Don’t you find it frustrating to browse Flash sites because you can’t use the browser’s back/forward button or send your friend to a certain section? The solution to this problem would be SWFaddress — a small Javascript library that lets you create virtual URLs for Flash and Ajax. SWFaddress has been around since 2006, and surprisingly not all Flash sites are utilizing this tool. In this post, I’ve collected 20 sites (Flash and Ajax) that are using SWFaddress.

Introducing a revolutionary analytic tool — Clixpy — it captures everything your visitors do on the site including: mouse movement, clicks, scrolling, and form inputs. For this review purpose, I tested it on IconDock and the results are impressive. Instantly, I can watch what my visitors did on the site. Clixpy is extremely useful to analyze the feedbacks on new sites and site updates. See it in action now or sign up to get 10 free captures for a test run.
