The Browser Statistics That Matter
Have you ever had a web development related conversation discussion where someone brought up global browser usage statistics? I might be a little weird, but I’d say I…
Five Huge CSS Milestones
This past December, CSS turned 20 years old. That’s straight from the horses mouth, and Alec rounded up a few highlights here, as well.
I figured I could weigh in as well, focusing on around the last decade, which, coincidentally, is how old CSS-Tricks is. That just about matches up with my experience in the industry.
Full Page Background Video Styles
I bet you’ve seen it. A video background that takes up the entire browser window. There is text on top of it (hence, “background”), which is an interesting…
