It has been another quiet week in the web industry. The WebKit team released Safari Technology Preview 149. The Chrome Dev Insider is back with an edition focused on CSS and UI. The software updates section features Ember 4.5, Node v18.6.0, Vite 3.0, and more. And I got a few fresh front-end resources to make your work easier.

Wrapping things up
I am taking a break from this newsletter for the next several weeks. It's vacation season and there is not that much happening at this time. I have my own vacation planned and I want to spend more time with my family. Hopefully, I will also find time to work some more on the website and improve it a bit more.
