Browsers that don’t support ECMAScript and CSS are just toys, not real web browsers. Sadly, that includes iCab, to date.
In all the recent discussion
about CSS and adapting web coding practices to adhere to the W3C standards, I haven’t seen much mention of the excellent software (and site, with mucho info) made by Westciv Webware. I don’t code enough to keep everything in my brain through sheer practice, and their site has been my saviour more than once.

following again: DeCSS code-crack dispute back in court.
Eric Costello has really
progressed with his CSS layout techniques page at glish.com. More good stuff there than you can shake a stick at.
Poking around at
the O’Reilly Network and associated sites this morning. Bopping around from politics to introductions to things I’m starting to play with and stuff. So far, I’ve come across the following interesting new (and no so new) stuff: The CSS Anarchist Strikes Again!; Is Open Source Un-American?; a bunch of OnLamp PHP articles; and Code + Law: An Interview with Lawrence Lessig.
