HTML5 and CSS3. HTML5 has definitely become a trend alongside its lil’ brother CSS3 because of their functions and utilities which makes them the next best thing in web design. Better even than Flash, maybe, in some situations . Being the next best thing will not determine you to use it, but the fact that it introduces and enhances a wide range of features including form controls, APIs, multimedia, structure, and semantics will do. The most important thing for you to know is that you can’t learn it just by reading, you have to work with it, step by step, using these new techniques from the tutorials that I’m bringing you here and by the time HTML5 and CSS3 properties will be supported on every browser you’ll be a rockstar coder.
However, sometimes it’s difficult to come up with the one excellent idea that would solve a problem that you are facing right now. Good news: almost every day designers and developers come up with fresh and clever CSS tricks and techniques and share them with other developers online. We regularly collect all these tricks, filter them, sort them, revise them and prepare them for Smashing Magazine readers.
