Optimizing CSS for faster page loads


A straightforward post with some perf data from Tomas Pustelnik. It’s a good reminder that CSS is a crucial part of thinking web performance, and for a huge reason: Any time [the browser] encounters any external resource (CSS, JS, images, etc.) it will assign it a download priority...

Totally free. No sign-up. No registration. All sessions are streamed live and publicly on the Inclusive Design 24 YouTube channel – see the entire playlist for the event. Quite the lineup. I’ve got a couple of other accessibility links burning a hole in my pocket as well: Matt Stobbs:...

Editing HTML Like A Boss In VS Code


Here’s a seven minute video from Caleb Porzio that focuses on some of Emmet‘s HTML editing features. You might think of Emmet as that thing that expands abbreviations like table.stats>tr*3>td*3 into glorious, expanded, and perfect HTML. But Emmet has other HTML editing trickery...

What is the Value of Browser Diversity?


In 2018, Rachel Nabors made the point that browser diversity is similar to biological ecosystem diversity. There are literal advantages to more diversity. That article was before the Edge engines were shut, and now the big shakeups at Mozilla have the topic of browser diversity on people’s...

Virtual Event Registrations with Wufoo Forms


(This is a sponsored post.) We’ve seen many events shift from in-person to online this year. That may have required a huge change to how you collect attendee registrations in the past, but with a paid Wufoo account and Zoom — along with a sprinkle of Zapier — it’s easier than ever to...

Winamp Skin Museum


65,000 skins, they say. That’s extraordinary, especially considering how creative and well done many of them are. MySpace was an even bigger creative explosion of customization. What’s the next product that will inspire this kind of user ownership through theming? Allowing...

Read Me!


A fancy experiential essay from the team at Readymag, which is a tool for building… fancy experiential essays, about fancy experiential essays: With all the technology addressing readability issues, it’s still design basics that distinguish a readable text from one that isn’t. Here are some...

Using a brightness() filter to generically highlight content


Rick Strahl: I can’t tell you how many times over the years I’ve implemented a custom ‘button’ like CSS implementation. Over the years I’ve used images, backgrounds, gradients, and opacity to effectively ‘highlight’ a control. All that works of course,...

Defining “View Source”


Last time there was a little flurry of activity around the concept of “View Source,” I did get the sense that not everyone was on the same page about what that even means. Jim Nielsen: First, when we talk about “View Source” what precisely are we talking about? I think this is...

AVIF has landed


Everybody is talking about AVIF today because of Jake’s blog post. As the say, I was today years old when I learned AVIF was a thing. But thanks to web technology being ahead of the game for once, we can already take advantage of it. This will be easier if you’ve abstracted your...

All the Ways to Make a Web Component


This is a neat page that compares a ton of different libraries with web components. One of the things I learned after posting “A Bit on Web Components Libraries” is that the web platform APIs were designed for libraries to be built around them. Interesting, right? This page makes...

Import Non-ESM libraries in ES Modules, with Client-Side Vanilla JS


We’re living through a weird era where there are tons of JavaScript libraries that were meant to be used as <script> tags that expose available globals. AND there are tons of JavaScript libraries that are meant to be used through module loaders. AND there are tons of JavaScript...

Bitcoin’s Dominance Index has slid 10% from a high of 67% on May 10, to a low of 57% today. Despite the defi market shakeout, ethereum still captures 10% of the aggregate market capitalization of $330 billion. There’s been a number of changes in the top ten line up of coins, as bitcoin...

Supercharging Number Inputs


Speaking of number scrubbing (i.e. adding mouse UX to number inputs), you can also add better keyboard commands to number inputs. Kilian Valkhof explains how he added up and down arrows to a number input, as well as modifier keys to change how much the keys increment the value, like Emmet does....

Stroke Text CSS: The Definitive Guide


Whenever I think of stroked text on the web I think: nope. There is -webkit-text-stroke in CSS for it, but it places that stroke in the middle of the vector outline of the characters, absolutely ensuring that the character doesn’t look right. Just look at this in Chrome or Safari. Gross....

But how popular is it among developers worldwide, and what do they love and hate about it? We at Kentico...

Come to Web Unleashed!


(This is a sponsored post.) Web Unleashed is a fun conference. I’ve been a number of times. I’m sure you won’t be surprised that it’s online this year, like most events. And, hey, it’s coming up and will take place over three days, October 5-7, 2020. I’d really...

a11y is web accessibility


Eric Bailey eviscerates the notion that the term “a11y” isn’t accessible. It’s a hot take that I’ve had myself, embarrassingly enough. I never see people asking why WWI is written out the way it is, either. Won’t people confuse that with the first Wonder Woman movie?...
