How to ask for design feedback “Oh, it's good.” “I like it. It looks nice. Good colors, dude... I gotta get back to work in a minute.” I bet you’ve heard feedback like that before.

Media queries — Responsive Web Design Is responsive design going to work every time? Is there any chance that it won't be supported in some of the currently used browsers? What an excellent question! Go straight to the head of the class. The support for media queries is like the force. It is strong. Simplex Raw denim you probably haven't heard of them jean shorts Austin.

Retina display & pixel density — Responsive Web Design Retina display and more than single pixel density allows the web to finally surpass the print world and produce content that is even more detailed than high definition television. Foundation, one of our favourite responsive design frameworks, has an almost unintended side effect for retina displays. Because Foundation won't allow images to be larger than their container (it scales them down to fit the grid) many images are already being scaled down. On a standard display that detail is lost when we scale — on newer iPads and now the new MBP that detail will no longer be lost, meaning we could embed very large images and get all the detail from them (at a huge cost in file size, natch). Likewise, background images can be sized using the background-size property, and you could use very large images that are scaled to 50% size on newer devices and browsers. This is one way of actually implementing a true responsive images solution, albeit with some major drawbacks.

CardView Grab it on github or check out the online demo. This is something I wanted to add to the SwipeView but while working on it I realized that they were two pretty different concepts and code bases. The purpose of the widget is to let you browse through a potentially limitless collection of items, a bit like a rolodex. It’s basically a carousel, but each new item is a “card” that slides over the previous one.

The science behind Netflix’s first major redesign in four years Back in March, a developer named Renan Cakirerk wrote a small piece of code that made a big impact on Netflix. Cheekily named "god mode," it addressed one of the most annoying aspects of trying to use Netflix in your browser: scrolling through the company's ever-growing list of movies. Once enabled, it would simply give you one, big list. Instead of sitting there, holding your mouse in anticipation, you could simply find the title you wanted and get on with watching.

Media Queries for Standard Devices If you think responsive's simple, I feel bad for you son. We got 99 viewports, but the iPhone's just one. —Josh Brewer, March 10, 2010 A major component of responsive design is creating the right experience for the right device. Showdown! 5 Online Image Compression Tools Compared Photo: tncountryfan Last year the HTTP Archive Report released the disturbing news that average page size on the web had increased 32% (to an average of 1.7Mb) in 2013. If that is even close to correct, it’s astonishing news. Although, predictably, JavaScript, HTML and CSS all increased, more than half the increase was accounted for by imagery. It was a case of more pixels, bigger files and more of them. While in some rare cases there isn’t a lot you can do to cut the size of an image, thanks to increasingly clever compression algorithms, more often than not you can drastically reduce the file size with minimal to no image quality loss.
