Whether you're looking for colorific inspiration for a website you're designing, or merely looking for an attractive and easy to read clock, The Colour Clock is for you.

24 Ways, the geeky Web developer advent calendar, is back for 2010

Back for its sixth year and as nerdy as ever, 24 ways gives you a delicious daily dose of design and development between the 1st and 24th of December. Almost every article has something to do with CSS or HTML, and it's definitely not targeted at beginners -- but if you work with websites, or you know someone that does, 24 ways is a must-read. The archives are fantastic, too, if only to see the...

The folks at ZURB have just released Bounce, a nice little tool which lets you take notes on websites and then share the URL with friends or colleagues.

When can I use ... is a great resource for browser compatibility advice

Developing for the Web can get quite rough at times, especially when IE is involved. Even when you take IE out of the picture (which you can't really do), there are still myriad differences among browsers, particularly in the implementation of newer technologies such as CSS3 and HTML5. When can I use ... is invaluable for answering questions such as "Should I be using the new HTML5 video tag in m...

Notable is a polished website feedback tool for teams

If you're part of the development team for a website project, it's important to keep tabs with all parties involved. It's necessary to get everyone's input, track progress to date, and synthesize the feedback so that the project can progress to completion. Some projects are straightforward and easy, while others can be insane at times. Either way, Notable is a great app to help streamline the p...

So... you want to be a web developer?

I had the most interesting conversation with one of my friends the other day. Adam: "Whew... finally finished with my latest web project!" Friend (in awe): "Whoa! That's awesome! How did you make that?" Now, of course, this project of mine was a full-fledged ASP.NET web application; a simple question like "how did you make that" could easily end up with me not only explaining what I did, but how ...

Flipping the Linux switch: Linux web tools and HTML editors, Pt. 1

In many ways, I'm pretty old school. When I learned HTML, I painstakingly handcoded my pages in the esteemed Notepad. Only when I became a master of HTML-fu did I allow myself to try Dreamweaver. (Okay, fine, the ability to buy a license with educational pricing may have had a lot to do with it, too.) I loved Dreamweaver. One of the things that always made me a little sad when I first tried Linux ...

Douglas Crockford: The State of Ajax

It isn't every day that Douglas Crockford (the father of JSON and JSLint) pops up with a new tech talk. In this one he discusses the current state of Ajax development, why mashups are inherently insecure, why the standards process is broken, and how our best hope for a newer better platform may be mobile. Say what? Basically he proposes the idea that because the replacement rate on mobile phones...

Google dabbles in time and search with new "Unavailable After" META tag

How often have you stumbled across a killer coupon or deal on the web, only to discover - sometimes too late - that the offer expired months or even years ago? If you're still counting, you might be happy to hear that a new meta tag from Google seems to be the first step in the right direction for combining and filtering time-sensitive information when searching. This new meta tag, according ...

Adobe Apollo blasts off, where will it take us?

Adobe's just-launched Apollo platform could be the ticket to a whole new world of applications according to TechCrunch's Michael Arrington. He writes of the announcement, "I honestly believe that entirely new classes of companies can be built on this platform, which takes Flash, HTML and javascript completely outside of the browser and interacts with the file system on a PC." You can pick up you...

Maypole: Agile web development for the rest of us

If you've been anywhere except under a rock for the last 18 months or so, you're probably sick to death of the phrase "Web 2.0," and for many people, Web 2.0 has become almost synonymous with Ruby on Rails. Ruby on Rails, though, has some major drawbacks for the average web designer. Ruby, while gaining steam, is still not as popular as more established programming languages. There aren't as many ...
