browser statis­tics

You want to use a new fea­ture, but then you look at some browser stats and find it’s not sup­ported by a browser with a size­able global share, so you can’t use it, right? “Nope!” says Chris Coyier. The only stats that mat­ter are the ones for your site, and they’re of­ten wildly dif­fer­ent. Run Google An­a­lyt­ics and then make your de­ci­sion. netm.ag/298-statis­tics

Ac­ces­si­bil­ity IN­SIGHTS

This is a fas­ci­nat­ing col­lec­tion of in­sights gleaned from the re­sponses to a tweet by Safia Ab­dalla: “If you have a dis­abil­ity, what’s the hard­est thing about brows­ing the web?” It’s in­ter­est­ing to read about the things that make a dif­fer­ence to ac­tual peo­ple as op­posed to look­ing at a dry stan­dards doc­u­ment. netm.ag/298-in­sights

time­less web de­sign

If you had to de­sign a site that would still look good in ten years’ time, what would you do? This ar­ti­cle col­lates a range of re­sponses to this ques­tion and con­sid­ers how type, style and even words can go stale. There’s a great con­ver­sa­tion in the com­ments about what con­sti­tutes clas­sic de­sign. netm.ag/298-time­less
