Life at the bleeding edge (of web standards)

Life at the bleeding edge (of web standards)
Quite often people assume that because the language I focus on is CSS, I must be a web designer. Don’t get me wrong, I love visual design with a passion.

However, if I had to pick one role, I would definitely consider myself more of a developer than a designer. I discovered coding on my own when I was 12 and so far it has been the most long lasting love of my life.

HTML5 This Version: Latest Published Version: Latest Version of HTML: Latest Editor's Draft of HTML: Previous Version: Previous Recommendation: Right Click Logo to Show Logo Download Options I was on the Invision website the other day and I wanted to snag their logo for some reason or another. Sometimes you can have better luck doing that (like when you happily discover it's SVG) than you can Google Image Searching or even regular web searching for something like "Invision Logo" and loping to find some kind of branding page with a logo kit download. So I right-clicked their logo, hoping to "inspect" it with the DevTools and check it out. Rather than showing me a context menu, it triggered a modal: I was pleasantly surprised, because that's exactly what I wanted. Here's a simple zero-dependencies way to do that

CSS3 Patterns Gallery Wave (294 B)✖by Paul Salentiny Browser support The patterns themselves should work on Firefox 3.6+, Chrome, Safari 5.1, Opera 11.10+ and IE10+. However, implementation limitations might cause some of them to not be displayed correctly even on those browsers (for example at the time of writing, Gecko is quite buggy with radial gradients).

The web platform has advanced out of all recognition, and continues to evolve at a frankly bewildering pace (I’m paid to keep track of all this stuff, and if I take a fortnight’s holiday I scramble to get back on top of it). Four years ago, if you wanted to access your device’s GPS information, you pretty much had to use a native app; now, the W3C Geolocation API is available in all browsers, on most classes of devices. The advancement of what marketing and the press like to call “HTML5″ (but mostly isn’t just HTML5) is closing the gap between the capabilities of native and web. But it isn’t there yet.

Prefix free: Break free from CSS vendor prefix hell! -prefix-free lets you use only unprefixed CSS properties everywhere.

kurthlab personal cargo In the future it will be less about technology and more about content. Right now as it stands everything is focused on technology and the products that encompass them, rather than on the human factor. We have a myriad of products all of which having to have their own preferences set, their own differing complex interfaces that need to be releanred for each individual device. Reading an article on our mobile devices and then continue reading it where we left off when entering our office, the same with movies, or music, having a seamless experience from car to home to office, all of which with an easy intuitive way to get to it, recall it, and share it is not part of our reality. All these pieces of technology take so much away from our daily lives, when all they were meant to do is improve our lives.
