But the principles of responsive design aren't that hard to understand, thanks to this amazing collection of animated GIFs put together by the guys Froont, a San Francisco-based company specializing in making tools for designers to create responsive websites.

Making GIFs just got easier with Imgur's new GIF creation tool

Imgur, the free image- and GIF-hosting website released its new GIF creation tool on Thursday called "Video to GIF" which allows users to create high-quality looping GIFs from videos hosted on the Internet, including ones from YouTube or Vimeo. As a GIF lover and creator, I was excited to hear the news, especially considering there really isn't a great place on the web to make quality GIFs in a timely fashion.

Imgur's new tool also uploads the files to its website, which takes an additional step out of the process and makes it even easier and faster for people to make GIFs. At the moment there are a few wonky websites that offer the service, but most people passionate about GIFs create them with offline programs such as Photoshop. However, the tool is incredibly easy to use. Next you select a start point, which is thankfully quick to load. Below is the resulting file embedded from Imgur. 5 Free Ways to Improve Your Typing Skills Online. If you didn't pay attention in your high school typing class, you might be regretting it now.

Lines [WebApp]

The monks were writing in the centre of the page allowing enough space for others to annotate the pages on the sides, method allowing you to read the story through other people’s writing. The problem arises when 5-6th person tried to comment there would be no paper space left over. As the time passed and writing material became cheaper this technique was abandoned and the techniques we used today were adopted. The team behind the project thought it would be interesting experiment to revisit the techniques using modern technologies, predominantly the “screen” as it has no borders and provides infinite space.

The way “lines” works is that you begin with the first column / text. Now, since reading happens more and more on screen, the fragmented reading process is greatly accelerated. Lines.thecafesociety.org (thanks Nitzan)
