The updates of the week feature Jasmine 4.2, Puppeteer 14.3, and more. And I'm adding a new section of tools, assets, and other useful resources.
WebKit Features in Safari 16 Beta
Safari 16 Beta was presented at the WWDC22 event last week. This update will include a lot of features developers have been asking for: container queries, subgrid, a flexbox inspector, Web Inspector Extensions, and more.
We finally have the release notes for the 102 update. Check them out if you need more info.
Vivaldi users now have a new set of tools integrated into their browser. This includes a Mail client, a Feed reader, and a Calendar.

Announcing Front End Resources
I'm adding today a new section to this newsletter - the Front End Resource collection. Over time I've bookmarked a large number of tools, assets, and other helpful things. I'm now sharing them with you and I hope you will find many useful things there.
I am still working on ways to present this collection in a better and more useful way. Doing it on a static site generator, without a database, raises some specific challenges. I hope you will join me as I learn how to overcome them.
