Responsive images – end of year report It’s nearly two years since I suggested a <picture> element as a strawman proposal as a way to solve the problem of responsive images, so let’s have a look at how we’re doing. In September there was a big meetup at Mozilla’s Paris office organised by Mozilla’s Marvellous Mr Marcos who’s been very active in the Responsive Images Community Group and did the hard work of actually turning the <picture> strawman into a spec.

Since every question is attached to a specific point in time in the video, Grockit Answers displays a question and its answers at the point in the lecture that they are most relevant. And since the things that confuse you are likely to be the same things that confuse others, you'll find that answers to your own questions pop up on the screen just as you're starting to get confused.
