Let's save the internet: How to make browsers compatible with the web
During the browser wars, compatibility was a mess and so was the web. Dirty hacks, a huge pile of frustration and enormous amount of time to test through every browser were a part of our everyday life. Times changed. Browser wars are finally over (right?!). But the web is still broken and browsers still work in different ways. In this talk, we’ll explore the reason for web (in)compatibility, how to fix it and how you as wompats can help to save the world (wide web).

Mark 57 – The new Firefox
Firefox 57, to be launched in November this year, will bring a new UI, new features, and numerous performance improvements. The talk will present the visible changes and explain what has been done behind the hood, and why we should be excited about the coming of a new generation of browser engines.
