CSS3 Transform to Matrix Filter converter This is the hardest of all the transform functions to understand unless you are mathematically gifted. However, for those who are stubborn, geeky, or both, a brief explanation follows. If you don't undertand everything below, don't fret — you'll probably never use this function.

On Scroll Header Effects with CSS Transitions At the present time, eminent breeders try by methodical selection, with a distinct object in view, to make a new strain or sub-breed, superior to anything of the kind in the country. But, for our purpose, a form of selection, which may be called unconscious, and which results from every one trying to possess and breed from the best individual animals, is more important. Thus, a man who intends keeping pointers naturally tries to get as good dogs as he can, and afterwards breeds from his own best dogs, but he has no wish or expectation of permanently altering the breed. Nevertheless we may infer that this process, continued during centuries, would improve and modify any breed, in the same way as Bakewell, Collins, etc., by this very same process, only carried on more methodically, did greatly modify, even during their lifetimes, the forms and qualities of their cattle.

If you need to edit anything just double-click it. 6 Methods For Vertical Centering With CSS Centering elements vertically with css is something that often gives designers trouble. There are however a variety of methods for vertical centering and each is fairly easy to use. Today I want to present 6 of those methods. I’ve usually skipped over the topic of vertical centering, since there are some good posts already out there that are easy enough to find, but recently Bikram commented requesting a tutorial on vertically centering so I thought why not. You can view demos of each of the methods below by clicking here. Clicking the images above each section will also take you to that specific demo.
Mobile design: Avoid these 4 common user experience fails This is a guest post by mobile design consultant Mariya Yao People downloaded over 30 billion apps in 2012, yet the average smartphone owner only uses about 15 of them every week. Even worse, a study by Localytics estimated that 22 percent of apps are only opened once. With all the money and effort being poured into mobile right now, why is engagement so low? While the answer to that question is certainly complicated, a number of common mistakes companies are repeatedly made in the app on-boarding process. We’ll be discussing user experience and more at VentureBeat’s upcoming Mobile Summit.
Responsive Images: If you're just changing resolutions, use srcset. If you're implementing responsive images (different images in HTML for different situations) and all you are doing is switching between different versions of the same image (the vast majority of usage), all you need is the srcset attribute on the <img>. Gaze upon this easy syntax: It's not just the syntax that is easy, it does a better job than <picture> with <source>s with explicit media attributes (we'll cover why in a moment). Plus it has the opportunity to be much better in the future with browser settings and browser improvements. I've screencasted about this before, but it clicked better watching Mat Marquis's talk at An Event Apart Austin and with Jason Grigsby's post.

Hover.css - A collection of CSS3 powered hover effects All Hover.css effects make use of a single element (with the help of some pseudo-elements where necessary), are self contained so you can easily copy and paste them, and come in CSS, Sass, and LESS flavours. Many effects use CSS3 features such as transitions, transforms and animations. Old browsers that don't support these features may need some extra attention to be certain a fallback hover effect is still in place. Licenses Hover.css is made available under a free personal license and paid commercial license. The Free Personal License allows you to use Hover.css for personal use only.
DevTools Extensions For Web App Developers The past year has seen many leaps made to improve developer productivity through better tooling. We're paying increasing attention to our workflow and many of us have spent time optimising our usage of tools like Grunt, Bower, Yeoman and the terminal. Another important area worth spending time on is your debugging workflow – if you're like me, this starts with the Chrome DevTools. When building an application with a specific framework or language abstraction, there's actually some additional tooling available to you in the form of recent DevTools extensions. In this post, I'll share a quick summary of the latest developments in this area, ranging from the recent Ember extension Yehuda Katz presented at EmberCamp through to less well known extensions for Backbone and KnockoutJS developers. Note: Canary DevTools disables icons in the toolbar by default, but I've re-enabled them via the Settings cog to aid with visualisation.
SVG Tabs (Using an SVG Shape as Template) An excellent feature of SVG is that you can define a shape (or set of shapes) once, and then use it multiple times throughout a page. You can even apply different fills and filters and whatnot to the different versions. SVG templating, if you will. Let's see if we can put that to good use by creating some tabs. I learned this was possible through Oleg Solomka's article on Codrops. Clever stuff!
