Dark Mode and CSS
With these changes, Dark Mode now becomes another aspect of responsive web design. As with device dimensions or color, the user’s environmental choices must be taken into account. Instead of adapting elements to viewport changes, you’ll be changing designs to match the user interface chrome outside that viewport.

Inspecting Yosemite's Icons
I want to focus on my favorite visual update in Yosemite — the dock icons. Before Yosemite, Apple maintained a system for icon design through a checklist of mostly unstated and understood guidelines paired with a few specific recommendations in the Human Interface Guidelines (HIG). With Yosemite, that system becomes more consistent, and regular, yet the HIG remains silent on the specifics.

Better Helvetica Font Stack
