As October ushers in the tail-end of the year, we are pushing Firefox 82 out the door. This time around we finally enable support for the Media Session API, provide some new CSS pseudo-selector behaviours, close some security loopholes involving the
Window.name property, and provide inspection for server-sent events in our developer tools.
This blog post provides merely a set of highlights; for all the details, check out the following:
Server-sent events allow for an inversion of the traditional client-initiated web request model, with a server sending new data to a web page at any time by pushing messages. In this release we’ve added the ability to inspect server-sent events and their message contents using the Network Monitor.
You can go to the Network Monitor, select the file that is sending the server-sent events, and view the received messages in the Response tab on the right-hand panel.
For more information, check out our Inspecting server-sent events guide.
Now let’s look at the web platform additions we’ve got in store in 82.
The Media Session API enables two main sets of functionality:

The other day one of our students asked about possibility of having a CSS cheatsheet to help to decide on the best suited approach when doing this or that layout.
This evolved into the idea of making a visual CSS cheatsheet with all (most) of the common patterns we see everyday and one of the best possible conceptual implementation for them.
In the end any layout could and should be split into parts/blocks and we see every block separately.
Here is our first take on that and we would be happy to keep extending it to help us all.
Please, send you suggestions in the comments in community or via gitlab for the repeated CSS patterns with your favourite implementation for that so that we will all together make this as useful as it can be.

This effect is so cool and just fun to see. What it comes down to is having a background image show through the text.
How it works is that we will have a div that will have the image as a background. On that, we put our text element, using blend-mode it will show through the image.
The result you can see and touch on this Codepen.
