Weekly Link Round-Up #50/51
Well again, I am slow getting a blog post written. I have 4 drafts saved right now! I spent last weekend at An Event Apart Chicago, and I really enjoyed myself. So, here are some links from the past 2 weeks:
- Automatic numbering with CSS Counters
Wow, I never knew this existed. Although if a user does not have a CSS capable browser, you better make sure the numbers are not essential to the content.
- Concept Design Tools
I love the backup software example.
- Using jQuery for Background Image Animations
Jonathan Snook shows how some simple jQuery can add some interesting hover effects.
- Designing User-Centric Web Sites
A discussion about creating a user-centric site. In the future, this definitely seems like it is going to be the direction that a lot of websites are going to go in.
- New in Labs: Stop sending mail you later regret
A new Labs feature, Mail Goggles, will try to prevent you from sending those late night drunk emails. It asks you to solve math problems when sending emails late at night on the weekends.
- On Wedding Design
While I’m not a big design nerd, I found this recap of Cabel’s wedding and all of the design he did for it really interesting. I definitely want a photo booth at my wedding!
Dave Shea starts a good discussion about whether browsers using page zoom will change the way that we slice websites. I actually have begun sizing my text absolutely and “soft-serving” relative units to IE6.
I’m definitely a perfectionist, not a purist.
- A List Apart: Issue 269
