    Hey guys. In today’s post I’d like to present a new jQuery & CSS3 demo I wrote called RocketBar. Let’s explore why I created it. Everyday on the web there’s something that we all do, almost regardless of the site that we’re on – we scroll down. If we’re reading a blog post, looking through a product description or even just scouring through eBay listings..in every case we need to scroll back up to the top of the page if we want to use the site navigation again or perform a site search. RocketBar is a simple solution for this which shows you how you can easily provide your users a persistent form of site navigation without them needing to scroll back up.

    We’re all really excited with the prospect of HTML5 and CSS3. Heck, I’m a marketer, and even I can see the positive impact this long overdue and refreshing change to the way we build websites will have. But there’s also a lot of hype and many conflicting opinions that do nothing but serve to confuse us all. That’s why I’m so pleased that we’ve partnered with John to develop both an HTML5 course and a CSS3 course that smash through the hype. These courses will focus on what you as a web designer can use and apply to your own or your clients’ websites right now.

    If you’re a web designer or developer and want to keep up with the HTML5 and CSS3 revolutions, these are two courses you don’t want to miss.

    CSS3 continues to both excite and frustrate web designers and developers. We are excited about the possibilities that CSS3 brings, and the problems it will solve, but also frustrated by the lack of support in Internet Explorer 8. This article will demonstrate a technique that uses part of CSS3 that is also unsupported by Internet Explorer 8. However, it doesn’t matter as one of the most useful places for this module is somewhere that does have a lot of support — small devices such as the iPhone, and Android devices.

    In this article I’ll explain how, with a few CSS rules, you can create an iPhone version of your site using CSS3, that will work now. We’ll have a look at a very simple example and I’ll also discuss the process of adding a small screen device stylesheet to my own site to show how easily we can add stylesheets for mobile devices to existing websites.

    The other day we were wondering how we could show our visitors more of our works. It’s normal that in a blog older posts get forgotten and even if something might still be very interesting and relevant, it get’s lost under the pile of new stuff. So we decided to create something like a little widget that can be used to show related posts in any page. The main idea is to show a fixed list at the right side of the screen with some thumbnails sticking out. When the user hovers over the items, they slide out, revealing the title and two links, one for the related article itself and one for the demo. Additionally, we will have a shuffle button under the list. When pressed, the list gets randomly refreshed with related posts.

    Before we use this, we of course, want to share it with you :)

    I use the column-count & column-gap property on the search page of this site to break my Tags list into 4 columns. Because the content is dynamic, I couldn’t just hard code each column, and I didn’t want to waste kilobytes on running a WordPress plugin to achieve an effect that was possible with a single line of CSS. Currently, only firefox and webkit browsers supports this feature and they all seem to do it differently. I’ve noticed that Mobile Safari, Safari and Firefox each render the exact same column-count CSS differently.

    If you are part of the CSS community you probably know that CSS3 media queries will change the way how we write CSS.

    Why is that?

    CSS3 media queries are very handy to target various devices with various monitor (screen) size. With the help of the CSS3 media queries we can have site optimized for iPhone and other mobile devices, with the same solution we can have site optimized for iPad and all other tablets . This CSS solution will be much more cheaper than building new mobile web site something like http://m.somewebsite.com or http://ipad.somewebsite.com .

    Can we start using the CSS3 media queries today?

    Yes we can!
