comment Testing Browser/OS combinations
The amount of testing, in part, depends on how critical an un-caught error would be. Would a failure be catastrophic to someone, or just a nuisance? What percentage of your users are on each platform? Is it worth testing a particular platform if only 1% of your users use that platform?

comment Why does integer division result in an integer?
How would the compiler know you want the result to be a decimal number? There are valid reasons to want an integer.

comment Software license options
Out of curiosity, why do you want to make the source visible but not allow someone to use it? Why not just keep the code private? What do you (or anyone else) have to gain by making the source available?

comment Does making a method static save memory on a class you'll have many instances of?
Have you considered writing a small program that creates thousands of such objects and doing the measurements yourself?

comment What are “class methods” and “instance methods”, in Python?
@Kashyap: the TL;DR applies to the very first paragraph. I think it works better at the top than the bottom.

comment What are “class methods” and “instance methods”, in Python?
@user2357112: I simply counted all instances of "^ def(", then counted all instances of @staticmethod. Very unscientific, but probably was within the ballpark.

comment What are “class methods” and “instance methods”, in Python?
@LightnessRacesinOrbit: I don't think static methods are used particularly often in python. Using my system as an random sample, when I search through all of the packages I have installed, only about 1% of all methods are static methods (which frankly was more than I was expecting).
