I’ve been really busy with client work recently but I have managed to set aside some time every day for reading and browsing. Here are some some interesting links I’ve seen in my web travels:

  • There are some great examples cited in 22 Examples of Fixed Position Navigation in Web Design. I’ve been thinking about fixed position elements for a redesign of CVW Web Design recently and I think this article has finally convinced me.
  • The Expressive Web is a show case of CSS3 and HTML5 features from Adobe. The site looks great and is quite interactive with a useful browser support summary at the bottom of each page/feature.
  • CSS Wizardry aka Harry Roberts posted a useful tip about Borders on Responsive Images. Nice one!
  • CSS buttons are more and more popular and CSS3 Buttons highlights a few examples. You just wouldn’t think that no images were used here!
  • There are some beautiful web design examples given in Phil Matthews’ Web Design Inspiration #3

That’s all for now.

Here are a few links from around the web that I have spotted recently:

  • If you ever receive spreadsheet data from a client and get asked to ‘just add this to our website’, you might be interested in Tableizer which converts spreadsheet data to HTML tables.
  • Bounce is a new web app for giving quick feedback on a web page. It’s a great way of sharing comments on a website! Here’s an example I made earlier.
  • Test your website before launch with Launchlist.
  • Meaningful Mark-up: Posh and Beyond is an excellent article on semantic mark-up and the benefits for you and your clients.

Quite a diverse list I think you’ll agree…!
