- Bruce Lawson's personal site : Editing the W3C HTML5 spec
"The WHATWG spec is a future-facing document; lots of ideas are incubated there. The W3C spec is a snapshot of what works interoperably - authors who don't care much about what may or may not be round the corner, but who need solid advice on what works now may find this spec easier to use."
- OS: High Contrast versus Inverted Colors | Adrian Roselli
"Safari on macOS High Sierra supports the inverted-colors media query. While this media query was planned for CSS Media Queries Level 4, it has been kicked to Level 5, so its standards-track speed has slowed."
- RSS: there's nothing better
"Sometimes, newer isn't better. Sometimes the problem has already been solved. No blog or news website should be too new or too minimal to support RSS."
- Common Responsive Layouts with CSS Grid (and some without!)
"When I was learning CSS and HTML the way that I learnt best was by copying layouts written by others and then changing bits, deleting bits and playing around with them until I understood what was going on. With that in mind, I've composed a few common responsive website layouts for you to copy, edit, mess around with."
- The Current State of Element Queries
"Media queries as we know them are 100% for responsive layout, but responsive layout isn't 100% @media queries. Modules, components, interface elements will always grow and shrink with the screen, but never react on their own, which is why @media isn't the entire solution to our issues."
- Tim Berners-Lee on the future of the web: 'The system is failing' | Technology | The Guardian
"Sir Tim Berners-Lee's optimism about the future of the web is starting to wane in the face of a "nasty storm" of issues including the rollback of net neutrality protections, the proliferation of fake news, propaganda and the web's increasing polarisation."
- Interface · Product Design
"The goal of any UI design tool should be to provide visual controls to enable anyone to ideate and create interfaces quickly. To be more effective, we need data interoperability between design and engineering tools."
