The advent of responsive design and HiDPI (or “Retina”) devices has created a real challenge for web developers: We need a way to provide multiple images to accommodate a variety of window sizes and resolutions.
Web design is a field prone to major shifts. For the last few years, the advent of the mobile web has commanded our attention. We must now assume that almost any site we produce will be viewed on a variety of devices—from phones, to tablets, to traditional desktops.
I believe the next major development will be high-definition displays, and this is a shift we should begin preparing for as soon as possible.
When developing a dropdown menu for your site, it’s important not to assume that all your visitors will be navigating with a mouse. Some might be using the keyboard exclusively to navigate your website.
Fortunately, enabling keyboard access is a relatively simple task.
