CSS also known as Cascading Style Sheets is now an integral part of web development as it allows developers to alter the elements in any web page, which were once impossible. If you know the correct source codes, you can easily make changes in text spacing, underline links and a lot of other stuff, which was non-changeable earlier. Also, responsive designing is getting popular with every passing day thanks to the ever growing popularity of mobile browsing. Today, in this article we will be discussing some of the most valuable CSS tricks that surely plays a significant part in the development and designing of responsive designs. As a developer, you must know that designing a responsive website is not difficult but maintaining it is definitely not an easy task. Developers must know the art of maintaining a balance in the layout of website and make sure that none of the elements or links are broken.
It all started when I wanted to do Google CSS3 redesign. The propose of that redesign was to use as much as possible CSS3. I wanted to maintain Google minimalistic style with little Apple flavor and Bing background style. Also to use only pure CSS and CSS3.

Introduction Recently, I have been quite interested with a new kind of web layout - dynamic and fluid layout. It cleverly fills in all the spaces and rearranges each items and display it nicely on browsers, and they usually come with slick animation too. Some of them even have advance filtering for different categories. I found 8 websites that share the same characteristics and in the last section of this post, I listed 3 jQuery plugins that help you to achieve the same effect as well.
Published by Chris Coyier It's pretty amazing what you can do with the pseudo elements :before and :after . For every element on the page, you get two more free ones that you can do just about anything another HTML element could do.

OK, so you’ve designed that nice web page of yours, picked the right backgrounds and colors for it to set the adequate tone and atmosphere for your visitors or clients, decided on the appropriate icon sets to make the browsing even more accessible, exciting and interesting, but how about the text? You still haven’t thought about it? If not, don’t despair, because we’re here to help!
By now you’ve probably heard at least something about animation in CSS3 using keyframe-based syntax. The CSS3 animations module in the specification has been around for a couple of years now, and it has the potential to become a big part of Web design. Using CSS3 keyframe animations, developers can create smooth, maintainable animations that perform relatively well and that don’t require reams of scripting. It’s just another way that CSS3 is helping to solve a real-world problem in an elegant manner. If you haven’t yet started learning the syntax for CSS3 animations, here’s your chance to prepare for when this part of the CSS3 spec moves past the working draft stage. In this article, we’ll cover all the important parts of the syntax, and we’ll fill you in on browser support so that you’ll know when to start using it.
You’ve probably heard about CSS sprites, but do you know what they really are and why you should use them? A simple answer is that a sprite is a composition of multiple smaller images into one large image. See the thumbnail of this post for an example. It might sound a little counterproductive to create a larger image, because it might take longer to download it right? Well, that’s not exactly true. CSS Sprites – How It Works
CSS3 is a wonderful thing, but it’s easy to be bamboozled by the transforms and animations (many of which are vendor-specific) and forget about the nuts-and-bolts selectors that have also been added to the specification. A number of powerful new pseudo-selectors (16 are listed in the latest W3C spec ) enable us to select elements based on a range of new criteria. Before we look at these new CSS3 pseudo-classes, let’s briefly delve into the dusty past of the Web and chart the journey of these often misunderstood selectors. A Brief History Of Pseudo-Classes When the CSS1 spec was completed back in 1996, a few pseudo-selectors were included, many of which you probably use almost every day.
Posted by Larry Battle on January 28, 2011 Hey Guys, What if you could just write HTML and have the CSS generate itself? Well, this question have been bugging me for while, so I decided to program it. Method: The method in which I did so what the following. I wanted to simulate evolution by having the user selecting which CSSJSON object would have offspring, in an attempt to find the perfect css for the html layout.
Yes, you should be using CSS3 today. Let's skip right past that whole discussion and start talking about how we can write better CSS3. A lot of the new features of CSS3 are just plain more complicated. They have complicated syntaxes. We have to use strange "vendor prefixes" to get them to work in as many browsers as we can.
