LOW←TECH MAGAZINE
Our new web design addresses both these issues. Thanks to a low-tech web design, we managed to decrease the average page size of the blog by a factor of five compared to the old design – all while making the website visually more attractive (and mobile-friendly). Secondly, our new website runs 100% on solar power, not just in words, but in reality: it has its own energy storage and will go off-line during longer periods of cloudy weather.

The Font Loading Checklist—zachleat.com
When I look back at the last four years that I’ve spent learning everything I could about web fonts and how web fonts load, I can distill it all down to a small checklist of ideals that I continue to chase. Our goal as web developers is to maximize the experience and raise user expectations to the level of what the web is capable of delivering, but also to manage our performance budgets to ensure that we are fulfilling the promise of the web—it’s ubiquity. This checklist should help you deliver on those two often competing ideals.

The Web is Made of Edge Cases by Taylor Hunt on CodePen
People will use your site how they want, and according to their means. That is wonderful, and why the Web was built.

Steve Jobs on Prototypes - Snook.ca
“We haven’t built a prototype in engineering for two years.

“What that means is, manufacturing gets involved from day one.

“A lot of times, when you build prototypes, it’s not quite the same technology as you’re going to use in production. And so all the accumulated knowledge you get from building your prototypes, you throw away when you change technology to go into production. And you start over in that accumulation process.

Reimagining The New York Times Digital Story Experience
May 8, 2018, marks the culmination of a years-long project to create an article ecosystem that promotes internal efficiency and delivers an enhanced reading experience for our users. We now have a single responsive article for both mobile and desktop on the web, and we use a subset of the same code to render stories in our native apps, Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) and our content management system. Here are the biggest benefits of the work we’ve done:
