updating the web

I was looking for some statistics regarding web browsers on the net when I came across a page called Browser News. It has a lot of information about new releases for browser software, and security patch updates. There have been a good number of those in the last month. It's worth a peek.

The United State's government is also looking at some upgrades in their use of the web. The E-Government Act of 2002 was signed into law today. While the law allows the federal government to employ people from private industry to help improve the level of online services and information available, I'm hoping that they keep an eye on the excellent Usability Guidelines developed by the National Cancer Institute.

The American Library Association has a very good analysis of the Act. (E-Government Act links via Metafilter)
