+_**Hello everyone,**_
+
+This project may have been sitting idle for the last year or so, but i [Robert](https://github.com/itechnology) have just gotten the green light from [Tipiirai](https://github.com/tipiirai) to try and keep the project alive together with [Paul](https://github.com/paulirish).
+
+
+There will be a few questions to work out, but i think that [Head.JS](http://headjs.com) still solves some basic problems that many users are experiencing. Especially in the Enterprise, where we must support obsolete browsers while at the same time moving forward with our time.
+
+1. Feature detection
+ * This area seems well covered by [Modernizr](http://modernizr.com)
+2. Script loading
+ * This area also seems well covered by libraries like [YepNope.JS](http://yepnopejs.com) or [Require.JS](http://requirejs.org)
+ * [YepNope.JS](http://yepnopejs.com) can by the way be bundled into [Modernizr](http://modernizr.com)
+3. Responsive design
+ * [Head.JS](http://headjs.com) handles this very well through css classes
+ * But there are other solutions like [Respond.JS](https://github.com/scottjehl/Respond) that work well too.
+4. Browser detection
+5. Plug browser quirks
+
+
+Since points 1 & 2 seem pretty well covered, going forward we will need to decide if those functionalities should be removed or not from [Head.JS](http://headjs.com), to be able to concentrate on the points that [Head.JS](http://headjs.com) handles well: 3-5
+
+If you're like me, and need to support browsers like IE6+, FF2+, and think head.js does a great job emulating responsive design, while letting you plug the odd bugs and quirks of your least favorite browsers...
+
+_**then stay tuned :)**_
