I learnt some mega useful CSS today, which I feel like I should have known already. I found this out from a Treehouse video, talking about print styles sheets. Treehouse is an excellent website full of useful and well produced video tutorials covering a wide range of development, design and computing topics, including Graphic Design, … More CSS after/content
Seriously, I thought this was long gone! http://www.geocities.ws/skeatermedia/ I was googling “skeatermedia” and “skeater” to see which one did better for me, and that old geocities site came up!

I don’t really like Opera’s dragon fly, some say it’s great but it’s too different for me to bother learning. The web tools in Safari and Chrome have some … More Chrome beats Firefox hands down
