Google Chrome is the most popular and widely used web browser in today's time, and rightfully so. One of the main reasons for this is its extensibility.

Chrome offers a bunch of extensions to help you with various tasks, and as a web developer, you can take advantage of them to increase your productivity and make essential tasks a lot less of a chore.

Although there are a bunch of other extensions available for purposes similar to those listed below, I have tried and tested each of these and have found them to be the most effective and efficient, both…


Free Verse | A Child’s Dream

Do you really not see it?
Or are you too afraid to look?

Beneath the bookshelf of your heart
The musty diary
That you keep shelves apart

Sitting in the corner
A child’s dream
Waiting for you to look
Reminisce,
At what you wanted to be

Fearless, determined
To face and conquer
Moving on uninhibited
After the curve of your smile

Fearless of what may come
Heart beating ever so fast
Fingers tingling with adrenaline
However long it lasts.

A heart so valiant
A will so strong
The belief of another sunrise
When it set,
To make way for the stars
Appreciating,
How they shine…

Everyone begins their journey with programming somewhere, and if you’ve started on the path, congratulations! You’re already one step ahead to becoming a skilled developer.

Programming gives you the power of writing your vision into something that the computer can execute. If you’re not having fun while doing it, you’re most likely doing something wrong. But don’t worry, you’re not alone. We’ve all been there!

When most people start out with learning their first programming language (or languages, but wait, we’ll come back to that later), there are some common mistakes that they make. …


While hierarchy and meaning in a webpage are intuitive to humans, semantic HTML makes the same understanding easier for machines.

Semantic relates to meaning in language or logic. Writing Semantic HTML means that tags are never chosen based on the way they appear in a web browser, instead, they’re chosen based on the importance and structure of the content.

Semantic HTML is the correct use of HTML to reinforce the meaning of content on a web page, rather than merely define its appearance. Semantically correct HTML helps search engines, screen readers, and other user devices determine the significance and context of web content.

Why do we need to tell the browser what our HTML elements represent?

SEO:

Search engines weigh keyword importance by their placement in the HTML hierarchy. For example, keywords enclosed in…


The goal isn't to just write CSS that works. Code CSS that is efficient and easy to maintain

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is one of the most important pillars holding a webpage together. It gives you the power to bring a sense of style and design into a simple HTML layout. From font families and colors to alignment and display, it does it all.

On top of that, it is unarguably one of the simplest and most intuitive languages to work with. After all, what’s easier than being able to change the characteristics of an element through a simple list of properties written almost in pure English?

But despite its deceptively uncomplicated exterior, CSS is an intricate system…

As India reels under the second wave of the Covid-19 crisis witnessing an increasing rise in cases and deaths along with a shortage of vital resources such as Covid Beds and Oxygen Cylinders, religious places from Temples and Mosques to Gurudwaras have stepped forward to lend a helping hand in dealing with the pandemic.

Be it offering Covid beds, oxygen facilities, donations, and even free food to those affected with the disease, these places of worship have shown that the biggest religion is indeed humanity.

Temples:

As India grapples with the spike in Covid-19 cases, several states including Maharashtra, Gujarat, Bangalore, Karnataka have reported a shortage of the anti-viral drug Remdesivir.

Although medical experts and even the WHO has maintained that it is not a proven cure against Covid-19, people are willing to try anything that gives them a ray of hope despite its uncertain impact.

With people lining up at pharmaceuticals and hospitals demanding the drug, a crunch in its supply has been reported giving rise to its hoarding and black marketing.

Reportedly, injections of Hetero-Remdesivir 100 mg of 20 ml, which is to be…


Several Hindu students of Rutgers University, Newark US had recently started an online petition against controversial Historian and Professor of South Asian History Audrey Truschke for her penchant for demonizing Hindus and propagating hate and misinformation about the community.

The Petition:

According to the petition shared on Twitter by ‘Hindus on Campus’, Professor Audrey Truschke’s statements had time and again reflected a clear and demonstrable pattern of deep Hinduphobia with the motive of creating a mistrust of Hinduism and Hindus.

In 2018, Audrey had casually tweeted that Sita had called Lord Rama ‘uncouth and a misogynist pig’. She had also…
