    Recently I’ve been working on the new website for my employers, Poke London, which launched last week. One of the things of which I’m proudest is the use of media queries to create a site which is sympathetic to small-screen devices. I learned a lot from developing with media queries, not least of which was the limit of what’s possible with them, so I thought it would be useful to present some of the key lessons learned in this post.

    A lightbox often refers to a pop-in window that can be used to display images, videos and html content in modern web applications. There are many fantastic javascript Lightbox solutions available on the web, however this article is focusing on CSS3 Modal Window solutions.

    Here’s a CSS3 property that has very little support and that I’m not sure has too many real world applications or if it would even be extremely beneficial — the CSS3 resize property.

    The resize property is part of the W3C’s Basic User Interface Module, which is in the candidate recommendation stage.

    Unfortunately, the resize property is listed in the Features at Risk section of that same document, so it’s quite possible that this feature will be removed if browser-makers don’t support it. Nonetheless, here’s a quick review of exactly what this property is all about so you can decide if it’s of any practical use in your projects.
