How to make a chart of your users' window sizes · Mozilla Marketing Engineering & Operations
In preparation for the MDN redesign I examined our analytics to get an idea of how wide our users’ browser windows were. I wanted window widths, not screen sizes and I thought a chart would tell a more compelling story than a table.

Flexbox Layouts with Susy by Michelle Barker on CodePen

Front-End Development in an Internet of Things World
The world wide web has continuously developed and morphed throughout its 27-year history. How we display and style content has gone through various phases throughout this time, the most recent of which was the emergence of a responsive web — one web that adapts to fit multiple browsers and device sizes. When it comes to a web with an ever growing number of “Internet of Things” (IoT) devices such as Raspberry Pis, smartwatches, personal assistants that work solely via voice, and so much more — the potential of the responsive web is going to be tested.

The IoT means even more varied devices out there in the wild that could potentially try to load content from the web. We need to ensure that the web remains as accessible and usable to those devices if we are to avoid another big segmentation like we had in the early battles between mobile and desktop. The last thing we want is one web designed for the IoT and one for the mobile and desktop web.

Responsive images: Smaller page sizes with the picture element and WebP – Mike Babb – Web Developer
At a recent Bristol Web Performance meetup Bruce Lawson gave a talk on responsive image techniques using the <picture> element he devised and had added to the HTML spec with help from some other clever people. I happened to be starting work on a project that’s particularly image-heavy for a client, so it seemed like a great opportunity to try out Bruce’s techniques and see what kind of bandwidth savings I could get.

The purpose and syntax of the <picture> element has been covered in a lot of detail elsewhere, so I’ll focus on my actual results here. Bruce talked about two ways to use the <picture> element to reduce page sizes and save bandwidth:

- Serving smaller image assets to devices with small screens, like smartphones, and
- Replacing JPG and PNG images with Google’s WebP format for browsers that support it

Use Cases For CSS Vertical Media Queries
Two weeks ago, Sara Soueidan tweeted about the love of CSS Vertical Media Queries, I’ve remembered that I used them in some projects and so I decided to write an article about them.

We all love media queries, don’t we? Without them our layouts won’t be responsive. Media queries that check for min-width and max-width are well-known and used a lot. In this article we will explore different use cases for using vertical media queries in CSS. So we will focus on min-height and max-height.

Completely CSS: Progressively Collapsing Navigation | Kenan Yusuf
Not long ago, I became interested in how we can replace the hamburger menu and wrote a post that was relatively well received. One of the alternatives that I researched and really liked is known as a progressively collapsing navigation.

If you're confused as to what a progressively collapsing navigation is, I previously summarised it as a navigation that utilises space, prioritises visible items and keeps the optimal ‘desktop’ view for as long as possible. But read that other post for more info.

All of the current applications of this type of navigation rely on JavaScript and like many other front-end developers, I am obsessed with cutting out JavaScript wherever possible. In this guide, I will show you how to create a progressively collapsing navigation with just HTML and CSS.

Today I’ll talk about the design of the web site and I’ll share how I get started with my coding, how I prepare the different assets, which tools I use, and how I organise my files, my CSS (or better put SCSS) in particular."

Responsive Aspect Ratios With Pure CSS
One of the hurdles I faced when beginning to work with responsive designs was the lack of an obvious way to assign an aspect ratio to a container in CSS. This kind of thing can be handled with an image placeholder or Javascript, but neither is an elegant solution. Fortunately, with a little bit of digging, an answer soon presented itself!

CSS with a minimal footprint.

Pure is ridiculously tiny. The entire set of modules clocks in at 5.7KB minified and gzipped, without forgoing responsive styles, design, or ease of use. Crafted with mobile devices in mind, it was important to us to keep our file sizes small, and every line of CSS was carefully considered. If you decide to only use a subset of these modules, you'll save even more bytes.

Browser Led Design | A talk by Dan Davies
There was an ongoing discussion at a conference I went to recently about designing in the browser and it was widely accepted that the term “designing in the browser” was confusing and incorrect, leading me to suggest “browser led design”.

It's essentially designing around a HTML base building up layers of design as we go through the process whether it be via CSS or Photoshop.

Adactio: Journal—Conditional CSS
Just to recap, I was looking for a way of detecting from JavaScript whether media queries have been executed in CSS without duplicating my breakpoints. That bit is important: I’m not looking for MatchMedia, which involves making media queries in JavaScript. Instead I’m looking for some otherwise-useless CSS property that I can use to pass information to JavaScript.

24 ways: Responsive Responsive Design
These sites were praised for their visual design and responsive nature, and rightfully so. They’re very easy on the eyes and a lot of thought went into their appearance. But the numbers above tell an inconvenient truth: for all the time spent ensuring the visual design was airtight, seemingly very little (if any) attention was given to their performance.

It would be one thing if these were the exceptions, but unfortunately they’re not. Guy Podjarny, who has done a lot of research around responsive performance, discovered that 86% of the responsive sites he tested were either the same size or larger on the small screen as they were on the desktop.

LukeW | RESS: Responsive Design + Server Side Components
There's no shortage of debate about the best way to develop Web sites that work well across many networked devices.

RESS (Responsive Web Design + Server Side Components) is one such proposal.
