Today’s Readings

Resize your browser to play this jigsaw game. Cause let’s face it, we’re all just sitting around all day yanking our browser windows edges anyhow!

Another stab at server-side responsiveness. Nice, not sure downloading all of jQuery is necessary just to get the device’s width, but still some nice ideas there.

And now that you have the server-side all ironed out, what do you do about images? Never fear, Smashing Magazine is here to help!

I don’t claim to fully “get” this, but it sounds like it should be a great thing!

A great Chrome DevTools tip from : Inspect event listeners that are attached to DOM elements, while viewing the DOM tree!

And from comes a few geeky-fun HTML5 syntax/parser quirks/tricks.

Poor choice of words for the article title, but awesome effects for lazy-loaded images!

A WYSIWYG editor for responsive websites. Will be most interesting to see the code it generates. I’m on the wait list…

Voyeur is a tiny Javascript library that lets you traverse and manipulate the DOM the way it should have been. I can guarantee you that if I were to use Voyeur, the first thing I would do would be to add this line of code to my JS:

Happy reading,
