PHP Malware Problem

While working with the WePay API, I needed to get some clarification with a PHP function and decided to reference the PHP documentation at php.net. Little did I know that Chrome had some different ideas for me this morning:
PHP Malware error

This seemed very odd to me. I mean, I understand that php.net has some malware-type code on it if it is classifying PHP code as malware. Even the URI that I referenced was directly to php.net/print_r, so there wasn't any URI misdirection or rewriting or anything like that, so I am very confused.

I looked into the problem that Google provided:
PHP Malware description

That wasn't very helpful, but it did provide an insight to the issue.

I don't know why Google decided that php.net contained malware since over 100 million sites use the language, with at least 3x the amount of developers on a per-day basis?

Has anybody else experienced this kind of issue? Was my version of Chrome just derping up?

Update (2013-10-25 09:13 AM): Slashdot covered this error in particular in a discussion forum on their website. Apparently, it was a bit of compromised and altered Javascript that caused Google to flag the site.

Get a Webpage Screenshot with GIMP

I was browsing around GIMP trying to get a screenshot when I stumbled upon this neat little trick:
GIMP Get Webpage

In GIMP (this edition is in Windows 7), you can go to "File > Create > From Webpage" to get a screenshot of a webpage! This is especially helpful on super-long pages (like Parallax websites) in addition when the browser Screenshot extensions/addons/plugins do a bad job.

(I have the Screen Capture extension in Chrome, and it works most of the time, but sometimes it gets the screenshot and misses/overlaps sections, so I have to repeat the Screen Capture process multiple times in order to get it right).

Anyway, after you click "From Webpage" in GIMP, type in your URL
GIMP Get Webpage

And click "OK".

In a few seconds, you'll have a full screenshot of the website in GIMP ready to edit/export/compress/etc!
GIMP got Shadow Dev!


I hope this helps some people out. I know it will save me a few headaches.

I just found a cool tool!

Ever since I first learned about Chris Pedderick's Web Developer Toolbar for Firefox, it has been an invaluable tool for my web development processes.

Now, Chris has gone one step further and included something that I just thought was cool: Responsive Layout viewer!
Responsive Location


This little widget allows you to view a site in the standard responsive design sizes, including standard mobile, mobile landscape, tablets, standard desktop, and more!

Here's an example of The System in this view, because I like the way Rosscott made his site:
The System - Responsive!


If you have Firefox or Chrome and work on the web, I would highly recommend this tool. This is an extremely close 2nd to Chrome's Developer Tools when working on sites.
