Got to keep up with the web. Here is a collection of pages I've bookmarked.
Opera at 15
Opera has now turned 15 (congratulations guys!) and Opera CTO Håkon Wium Lie has a reflective post, which he sums up with his thoughts on the next 15 years.
Important point this I feel - very often the best way to challenge yourself is to try and pass your knowledge on to others. You will find gaps in your own knowledge that can be filled and ask questions you would never have thought of before.
This is a superb article by Stephen P. Anderson who is advocating that "eye candy" is extremely important. The key is to make your users relax and feel more comfortable. Excellent.
The first idea
UI designers are employed as professionals for a very good reason - they design your UI! Do not let your developer do it - things can turn out very badly.
Altering the F-pattern
Jakob Nielsen recently posted about the F-pattern that end-users tend to follow when scanning through a web-site. But can you break that pattern through design? I would certainly say so.
A wonderful collection of inspiring typography. Well worth checking out.
Free Flex Builder
If you have been made unemployed recently you can download Flex Builder for free from Adobe. Interesting approach to software distribution.
Multiple classes in IE6
This is a page that was sent to me for an issue with classes in IE6, which I think is worth highlighting - IE6 does some weird things with multiple class handling!
Interesting interview of Ben and Dion from the Mozilla Labs Developer Tools group talking about their vision of the open web and how we can keep the web open.
Okay so this is an April fools joke, but it is very funny. Each page just makes me laugh even more - nice one!
