36 High-Quality Flat Design Resources
In contrast to skeuomorphic design, flat design focuses on simple shapes, colors and typography to emphasize clarity and usability.

Rather, we must get a brand new ideology and modify our coding habits to keep the web accessible. While it is true HTML5 and CSS3 are both a work in progress and is going to stay that way for some time, there’s no reason not to start using it right now.
