Blog posts to integrate into documentation

Often, Mozilla developers and community members write blog posts. And often, those blog posts are really, really awesome. And, often, those blog posts include information that really ought to be included on MDN. Sometimes, it's the entire blog post that could be adapted into a tutorial on MDN (but please check with the author first, unless they're known to have given blanket permission!), and other times, there are just details about changes to Firefox or web technologies that we need to be sure are reflected in the right places in the docs.

This page contains a list of links to blog posts that need to be reviewed and the relevant information added to MDN. Please feel free to add links to this list, or to review these blog posts and add the relevant information to documentation. If you do so (or look a post over and realize it doesn't really need anything done to documentation after all), please remove it from the list!
