A while ago, the popular tech blog TechCrunch launched a new design for their website. Along with this design, they released a new logo. I wanted to generate this logo in HTML using jQuery.
This logo looked like the perfect candidate to do so, since it uses huge pixels and only a couple of colours (4 shades of green). With only little HTML, CSS and jQuery, I was able to generate this logo with not much effort.
Did you check out the demo to see what we're going to do? This is how you can generate this pixellogo yourself!

A while ago (I think it was around the release of the iPad), the Apple.com website got a new navigation menu on the top of the page. This menu bar was a lot darker than the previous, grey version, but looks just as great. One thing which I noticed about the navigation, is that the buttons are created out of images. That's the moment I thought we could do better, using some nifty CSS3 techniques. So today, I present you the Apple.com navigation menu created using only CSS3.
Since this demo heavily relies on CSS3, make sure you view it using a CSS3 compatible browser. The Webkit browsers (Safari and Chrome) display the effect the best, followed by the latest version of Firefox. Opera and IE don't display everything correct, but the menu seems to be working.
The menu on the Apple.com website also updated their search suggestion, which hasn't been implemented in this demo (yet), but I might create that later. For now, let's check out all the CSS3 you'll need to be able to create this fancy looking navigation menu.

Just like I said in my previous article; Since Firefox 4 was relesed, loads of new (CSS) features were released into the wild. Next to the :any() CSS selector, another cool CSS feature was added to the Gecko engine that I wanted to check out, and is called the
According to the specification, this function does the following: Starting in Gecko 2.0, you can use the
element() CSS function to use an arbitrary HTML element as a background image for
background-image. That sounds pretty interesting! Take note this only works in the latest version from Firefox, and still needs the
-moz- vendor prefix (so the complete function call will be
You can directly view the source from the demo to check what kind of small experiments (or checking out some bad practices) I did, but I would recommend you to read why the experiments are interesting.

Since Firefox 4 was relesed, loads of new (CSS) features were released into the wild. Ofcourse, this is a great thing, since Firefox has a rock solid place as 2nd most popular web browser. More people will actually be able to see all the nifty stuff you'll create using CSS.
I recently came accross a CSS selector that was included in Firefox 4 (and is added to Webkit (nightly) as well), called the
:any() selector. We'll take a look at what this selector does, and why you would want to use it.
Be aware that the
:any() is not part of the CSS3 specification (yet), but since Webkit already implemented it, I'm pretty sure others will follow as well. Also, to make it work in Firefox, use the
-moz- vendor prefix, resulting in
-webkit- vendor prefix for Webkit). So let's see what this
:any() selector can do for you.
