Google released research on what makes a good boss – do you agree? | Money | The Guardian
1 A good coach
Good bosses help employees through problems and use them as learning points.

2 Empowers the team instead of micromanaging
If your boss frequently tells you how to do small tasks that you are completely qualified to do on your own – like how to write an email – then you may have a micromanager on your hands. A good manager should empower you to use the skills that got you the job instead of trying to do everything for you.

3 Creates an inclusive team environment, and shows concern for success and wellbeing
If your boss leaves you feeling terrified of going to the toilet or asking questions, they probably haven’t done a great job at creating an inclusive team environment.

Google has refined its findings on this trait over time, showing that good managers ensure people feel comfortable to introduce new ideas, and don’t feel scared to ask questions or admit mistakes.

4 Productive and focused on results
Good bosses help out where necessary and make sure that you know what you are working towards.

5 A good communicator
This one is pretty self-explanatory: a good manager should be good at sharing information, and good at listening, too.

6 Supports career development and discusses performance
This means doing more than just giving criticisms or showing interest in an employee’s prospects – Google’s research has shown it has to be coupled with feedback that helps an employee work towards their goals.

7 Has a clear strategy for the team
A good boss let’s you know what is expected of you, and what you need to do to get there.

8 Has the technical skills needed to advise the team
Ideally, your boss should know how to do the job that they are asking you to do. If they are new, they will take time understanding the team before they make big changes.

9 Collaborates across the organization
Good managers don’t just have a good relationship with the people they manage, but other people in the organization, too.

10 Is a strong decision maker
Google has a lot of information on its website about how bosses should make informed decisions. In reality, most people just want their boss to make decisions quickly enough that they can go home on time and their work isn’t wasted.

Google Docs works surprisingly well in Safari on iPadOS - The Verge
Answers first: Apple is setting the “user agent” (the thing browsers use to tell websites what they are) to the desktop version of Safari. That means websites won’t default to serving their mobile versions because they see an iOS-based browser. After that, though, Apple is optimizing that site to work with touch (and the iPad’s keyboard). So it was pretty easy to hit all of Google Docs’ menu buttons, and keyboard shortcuts were no problem.

Official Google Webmaster Central Blog: Using page speed in mobile search ranking
Today we’re announcing that starting in July 2018, page speed will be a ranking factor for mobile searches.

The “Speed Update,” as we’re calling it, will only affect pages that deliver the slowest experience to users and will only affect a small percentage of queries. It applies the same standard to all pages, regardless of the technology used to build the page. The intent of the search query is still a very strong signal, so a slow page may still rank highly if it has great, relevant content.
