New Website

I've made a new website, as lynx.io is dead. You can find it here: http://macr.ae/—it's similar in format to lynx.io, but has better articles, and they're all written by me.

About

lynx.io was founded by Callum Macrae in 2011 with the aim of providing web developers with a good and reliable source of information, tutorials and tips. On it, you can find articles on a variety of topics, including articles on PHP, JavaScript, development infrastructure, patterns, and third party scripts like CodeIgniter and phpBB. We take requests - if you would like to see an article, just contact us and if we like it, we'll write about it.

lynx.io was not named after a certain text-based web browser, it was named after the mythical creature. A little quote from Wikipedia:

The Lynx is an elusive, ghost-like animal that sees without being seen. […] The Lynx teaches us that even the smallest can succeed in life, and that the world can unfold itself to those who stop and listen.

Contributing to lynx.io
