Seeing as browsers parse HTML... what do you say? Is it possible?

comment How Do I build a Custom Web Browser Using Webkit?
Perhaps a forum like the one codeproject has? There are plenty of programming forums out there where such a question may be suitable.

comment How Do I build a Custom Web Browser Using Webkit?
Sorry Jessica, but Stack Exchange sites are not the place for the kind of help you are looking for. We are much better at specific issues - Stack Overflow for specific programming questions, here for specific software design questions. We are also a poor place to ask for recommendations - such questions are out of scope of our sites.

comment Cricket Score Board in C
Such a question is off topic on Stack Overflow as well. It is not a debugging service either. Instead of editing your question, if you do have some conceptual algorithm problem, please ask a new question.

comment Cricket Score Board in C
I did link to the help center... which describes what is and is not on-topic here. The issue is not one of "newbiness" or not. It is that the question is specifically asking us to debug your code for you - which is off-topic to this site. Whiteboard programming questions deal with design of programs - not implementation.

comment Cricket Score Board in C
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about debugging your code for you, and not a whiteboard programming issue as described in the help center.

Am I missing something? Can you not save the jsperf page locally and use it "offline"?

comment What are all the items considered for unit testing in mobile applications?
The question is too open ended. Is there anything specific you are thinking about? You need to narrow down the question.

comment What do we call the process of changing hard-coded codes into soft-coded codes?
Define "soft-codes" and "hard-codes" please. That is not standard terminology.

comment How to handle or prevent all Admins and users being removed
YAGNI. Don't code for "what if". Code for things that are actually likely. If that happens - there should be backups.

comment What is the difference between Repository Pattern and Facades Pattern?
@MirkoPastorelli - it can. An example of a facade would be to give a single entry point for code that actually has to deal with several subsystems.
