» Chromium Notes: RTL titles

Just one of a whole bunch of fascinating articles in Evan Martin’s Chromium Notes series I ended up reading after looking into Glick as a possible remedy for the long, slow process of trying to publish a binary tarball of Bustle which works on more than one Linux distribution. As a fan of messing with people’s software by embedding RTL markers and the like, I particularly enjoyed the footnote:

In this image, I constructed a page with a specially-crafted title, which Chrome naively formats as “$PAGE_TITLE - Google Chrome” and then hands it on to the OS. The image shows what happens when I alt-tab.

RTL - Google Chrome will never get it right!
