HTML 5, CSS 3 and jQuery

Here are some great resources and tools for Web Designers / Developers-

Internet Explorer 9

As a web developer / designer, I have to deal with writing code that works on many different web browsers. This can cause a lot of extra work that is usually not worth the trouble.

Specifically speaking of Internet Explorer 6, which came out in 2001, has been one of the worst / hardest browsers to design for.

Most browsers follow W3 standards. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer is notorious for not following standards, thus rendering broken pages and not supporting cutting edge features.

With this being said, Microsoft has actually developed a decent browser, finally following standards with IE 9.

So of the most important new CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) features are drop shadows, rounded corners and transparency, which gives designers more freedom from having to use Photoshop for these effects. IE is finally support these effects.

Updates

For some reason I always end up doing updates on this site the 1st of every month. I have been working on a cartoon site lately, as well as some freelance work like house renderings, media prints, live music videos, websites and widgets with some new friends.
