  • Mobile releases

    • Waiting for an Apple review

  • Document scrolling outside of bounds

  • Following UI pixel weirdness when zooming

    • Because the border around the chip is around multiple elements, sometimes things overflow as browsers scale css

    • Only partial for the moment, but the approach I’m looking at seems promising…
