Party like it's 1999

I usually say this in jest, as in when I see a Web page that looks like Richard Stallman designed it. But seriously, drop everything and read this article:

The hours and days I spent optimizing images in the '90s are not a wasted effort after all, just a rehearsal for how to build a proper mobile site.

A very nice article, Walter. Thanks for sharing it.

I’m curious about how I will manage to give - and get - support from this
group. I mean, most people here seem to fixate on how to get Freeway to
do such and such, whereas my process starts with how to get
browsers/servers to do such and such - and then how to get Freeway to do
that.

Does that make sense?

That’s funny. My process usually starts with how do I get my brain to understand how to do such and such, then the browsers, then how do I code it.

regardless of host (never really thought about), browser (thought about but thought as well about gripping fleas) or app:

This way of building “flexible pages” matching a maximum count of devices is pretty cool and worth to think about or even discus.

Unfortunately nobody wanted to discus it with me yet - stuff like: @media queries, full percentage inflow layouts in Freeway or even some small javascripts for controlling “imagesize” matching whatever device.

So I still wonder and admire the guy at css-tricks.

It’s good to know everyone is coming the realisation that design for the web is not just the pretty visual bits, it very much includes the actual user experience and function of the site, speed being a big issue.
