Watching the browser wars unfold has been interesting. Mozilla Firefox was possibly the king only a few years ago, whereas now it seems Google Chrome has taken much of their market shares. For those who use Chrome it may have some bugs but ultimately runs much quicker and scales better than Firefox.
And while Mozilla has an Extensions gallery, Google has launched an extensions gallery side-by-side with Chrome. In here developers are able to create small browser extensions and tie into 3rd party APIs for some magnificent features. The installation process is simple, efficient, and leaves you begging for more.
Web developers should be especially interested in Google Chrome as they strive for perfection in browser testing. Scaling your website between the many browsers today is difficult. Luckily Chrome is one of the better software partners out there, and in celebration I’ve collection 32 extensions specifically targeted towards web developers. Install a few see what you think, and please offer any extensions you’ve personally found in the comments section!
Minimalist design is one of the most significant design movements of the 20th century and early 21st century. It isn’t the flashiest, or the most popular, but it arguably penetrated more fields than almost any other art or design trend. Everything from user interfaces, to hardware designs, to cars, to films and games, to the web and visual designs of today – all those fields and more were influenced by minimalism.
Your friends might not know what minimalism is, but chances are they’re currently using or viewing a minimalist design: a modern phone, a clean web or application interface, looking at a slick brochure or other graphically-presented information, sitting in a simple living space on a sleek sofa, and so forth.
