Website speed test Nobody Likes a Slow Website We built this Website Speed Test to help you analyze the load speed of your websites and learn how to make them faster.

I named it Grid-A-Licious and described it as, "Divs are placed in chronological order with a special grid" because I had no clue how to explain it better. I used this script a lot and designed many sites with it during 2008. At first, people were very skeptic and confused on how to read the grid, and thought this kind of layout belonged in real papers. This reaction slowly faded away once the layout became more and more popular when different developers and designers started to create their own script's interpretation of the floating grid layout effect. Not saying it was based on my work or script, because there were a few others that brought a similar layout effect to our attention, but not necessarily distributed as a plugin.

Projects — Andy Taylor Style Manual An incomplete, personal grammar reference. When something is in question, I plan to document the opinions of multiple books (and other sources), drawing my own conclusions and setting my own rules for style. 1140px CSS Grid A (retired) responsive CSS grid system. A simple set of templates for any project March, 2013: The files have been updated — this web site has not! Head over to GitHub for the very latest. Like a lot of developers, we start every HTML project with the same set of HTML and CSS files. We've been using these files for a long time and have progressively added bits and pieces to them as our own personal best practices have evolved. Now that modern browsers are starting to support some of the really useful parts of HTML5 and CSS3, it's time for our best practices to catch up, and we thought we'd put our files out there for everyone to use. By no means do we see this as the One True Way to start every project, but we think it's a good starting place that anyone can make their own.
