I’ve put the new layout online! Of course I know work needs to be done on it, but I know myself: I’ll only do that when I put the new thing live :). The sidebar is widgetized, and I’ve tried to use as much css3 features as I could ;). I’ll be adding fallbacks for all the different css3 stuff in the coming days, for now, it looks best in a WebKit nightly build, and it looks pretty good in Firefox too… Let me know what you think!
Of course I need to thank Laurens, from TND media, for creating the design in Photoshop!
You can skip to the end and leave a response.
You are doing a very good job in helping out users implementing CSS3 specific features. I hope that Mozilla and Microsoft are listening and update their browser quickly.
Indeed, in WebKit (Safari) nightly build, CSS3.info looks stunning. There is just a bit too much shadows, though. I’d remove the shadows from the title of the sidebar blocks.
I don’t mind seeing your site break in Internet Explorer 6. Let the users switch to Firefox or upgrade. CSS3.info is working fine in IE 7 and Firefox.
Hmm, it has a horizontal scrollbar in a 1024×768 sized window in Firefox:Mac. There also appears no padding on the left side. See here: http://img267.imageshack.us/my.php?image=picture1dc0.png
Awesomeness! This is actually very impressive. I used some css3 on my older weblog before (opacity, border-color, border-radius, multi-columns) and the new one as well, but the result was not nearly as nice as this. Kuddos on this ‘grensverleggend’ work!
I must confess it: I’m a little disappointed. It smells a bit of a use-the-feature-because-it-exists. Especially the use of text-shadow is overdone. I much prefer the look of the site on the latest Gecko Mac nightly build than with Webkit builds.
Is that a WebKit bug or a layout bug? The box-shadow on the first comment above is no painted on the right hand-side.
(and I would be nice if the submit button was not styled :-)).
I wish that either I had a Mac available to me right now to view this page on, or that Firefox had more support for CSS3. Anybody using the latest nightly of Webkit care to take a screenshot for those of us who don’t have macs?
It’s a pity that this page doesn’t validate in W3’s CSS validator (http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/), but no CSS3 feature will validate for now. Thats part of the reason I don’t use it as extensively as I could; I don’t really mind that my blog doesn’t validate because Blogger won’t produce anything particularly valid anyway, but I’m a bit more concerned about everything else I make.
Also, something is wrong with the submit button, at least in Firefox 18.104.22.168; there seems to be a light gray rectangular box OUTSIDE of the border-radius. It looks just fine when hovering, but when not hovering it looks a bit off.
Congrats for the *new look*. It is great.
Please don’t stop, go ahead! You are doing a great job.
Feedback: The #sidebar is jumping below the #content in IE6/Win (ugh!).
I give a try with AIS toolbar here and notice that; * html #sidebar (…; position:absolute;} fixes it.
I’m not sure if this is the best solution and don’t know about drawbacks in doing so, but I hope this could be useful.
I liked the previous design more than this… I think this is a little too white, and the design is a little bit bussy.
* the menu breaks when I do the CSS selectors test;
* there is a white ‘border’ under the footer, is that that what you meant or is it a bug?
Great work guys. Keep it up. I’m very interested to see where this website goes as CSS3 starts to really take off.
As for the re-design; I have to say I’m a little disappointed. I much preferred the old version. I think this design took a step backwards. That great header graphic you had is now a bit lost and understated.
