While developing a new website for a customer I had to try some CSS tricks. Before going further I wanted to check the web compliance of Firefox 5 Beta, Safari 5.0.5 and Chrome 11 (sole browsers on my Mac OS X 10.6.7).
Someone I know asked me to check the “Phone 4” he bought in Saigon, a fake iPhone 4 he bought in a market. the smartphone was not working since he brought it at home.
I accepted to check the phone even if I don’t know a lot about iPhone 4, I own an iPhone 3G.

Google interviewed people in New York on the street and most of them couldn’t answer to two questions:
-what is a browser?
-what is a search engine?
Some of the answers given in the video include:
“A website you can search on.”
“A search engine.”
“It’s where you put your search terms.”
