Hosting #66

Choose a 'green' web host

Electronic waste, electricity consumption and greenhouse gas emissions
Choose a web host that combines economical servers with renewable energy, and which offsets its greenhouse gas emissions. The six criteria to bear in mind are:
1. WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) management 2. Data center energy efficiency 3. Sustainable purchasing policy 4. Corporate social responsibility policy 5. Renewable energy power supplies 6. Carbon offset

Development #44

Make DOM elements invisible during modification

When several properties of a DOM (Document Object Model) element must be modified, each style or content change will generate a repaint or a reflow. It is therefore usually more economical to:
- make the element invisible (set display to none) (1 reflow) - modify the element properties and then make it visible again (1 reflow)

Thus resulting in a maximum of 2 reflows.
