Elon Musk dubbing himself TechnoKing last week inspired me to legally change my name to what I always call myself after a pushing a fat PR: DOMLord. Sorry Mom.
V8 releases v9
The new symbol for speed
V8 (the engine, not the juice) released v9.0 last week with some notable improvements. It’s still in beta while it waits to coordinate its release with Chrome 90, but you can give it a whirl today if you’re feeling spicy.
Presumably Lars liked fast cars, all of which were probably powered by V8 engines.
While a fine name for 2008, V8 doesn’t quite hold the same oomph it used to. That’s why we’re introducing a new petition to change the name of V8 to Daphne — the ultimate symbol for speed and power in 2021.
What’s the use of having a large newsletter if you don’t use it to foster the change you want to see in the world?

The Bleeding Edge — Clio
Show me the bleeding edge of the web 🔮
We’re highlighting a very new project today, so buckle up and put on your Bill Nye bow tie.
We can break Clio down into three main parts:
Don’t Get Sued
If the name Clio sounds familiar to you, that’s because it’s also the name of a bunch of other things, including Renault’s best-selling subcompact car and a SaaS company that makes software for law firms.
So, we’ll tell the Clio team the same thing we tell ourselves every week when we start writing Bytes: have fun out there, but try not to get sued.

This is the first ever newsletter that I open a music playlist for and maximize my browser window just to read it in peace. Kudos to @uidotdev for great weekly content.
The Bytes newsletter is a work of art! It’s the only dev newsletter I’m subscribed too. They somehow take semi boring stuff and infuse it with just the right amount of comedy to make you chuckle.
Bytes has been my favorite newsletter since its inception. It’s my favorite thing I look forward to on Mondays. Goes great with a hot cup of coffee!
I subscribe to A LOT of dev (especially JS/TS/Node) newsletters and Bytes by @uidotdev is always such a welcomed, enjoyable change of pace to most (funny, lighthearted, etc) but still comprehensive/useful.
Literally the only newsletter I’m waiting for every week.
Bytes is the developer newsletter I most look forward to each week. Great balance of content and context! Thanks @uidotdev.
The sense of humor and structure of the Bytes Newsletter is first class and the information that comes with it is enough to make a mini course.
Very few newsletters manage to be useful and not very boring. @uidotdev manages to achieve these pretty effortlessly. You can almost see Tyler chuckle as he writes them.
