Looks interesting: lazySizes loads images, iframes, scripts asynchronously, incl srcset/<picture>. Have you tried it? afarkas.github.io/lazysizes/

That's quite useful if you really dislike the (humble) command line: Gemba lets you drag’n'drop files into Git. gemba.io

Do you actually use your browser bookmarks bar? Removed it a while back and find myself much more productive using Alfred for specific URLs.

There’s nothing more annoying than knowing that the content is already available but blocked due to heavy Web fonts.
And it’s not difficult to achieve either. Fonts in localStorage or use WebFontLoader: github.com/typekit/webfon…. One-time-font-switch is OK.
Sorry, but blocking the rendering of the content due to web fonts is disrespectful, annoying and unnecessary. Fallback first, Webfont later.
