CSS and Network Performance – CSS Wizardry – CSS Architecture, Web Performance Optimisation, and more, by Harry Roberts
CSS is critical to rendering a page—a browser will not begin rendering until all CSS has been found, downloaded, and parsed—so it is imperative that we get it onto a user’s device as fast as we possibly can. Any delays on the Critical Path affect our Start Render and leave users looking at a blank screen.

Optimizing CSS by removing unused media queries – Zoover Engineering – Medium
One of the (supporting) metrics that we are trying to improve for this trimester is the amount of CSS we ship to the browser. CSS is absolutely critical for the (perceived) performance of your website: any render is delayed until your stylesheets have been fully loaded. We’ve given ourselves a budget of 50 kilobytes of uncompressed CSS: not entirely coincidentally the same limit that AMP imposes on stylesheets.

Dark Mode and CSS • The Breakroom

It also presents a lot of new situations where developers need to adapt content in their apps and websites. While these changes are currently limited to native macOS apps, the arrival of Marzipan next year makes it likely that iOS developers will be confronted with similar changes in UIKit. A dark user interface would be a reality on all of Apple’s platforms, including tvOS and watchOS.

You're using <em> wrong
It’s been a bumpy road that somehow got us misusing one of the most important text-level semantic tags. In the dark ages of HTML, <em> was barely used at all, despite being part of the specs since really early on (HTML 2.0 standard, 1995). But at that point in time and for some years to come, (almost) no one was thinking of semantics or even separation of concerns. Italics were simply marked up with <i> tags, and we wouldn’t give it a second thought.

The option allows you to enable dark interface through all the system, which is very useful while working in the evenings and nights. Native apps are able to take advantage of the mode by following some interface guidelines. What about web apps? Safari 12 that shipped with Mojave does not have a way to detect whether a user has a dark mode or not. The good news is: Safari Tech Preview 68 supports Dark Mode! And Safari 12.1 might support it in a few months too.

It is always important to bear in mind that a site that is 100 percent WCAG compliant and throws no errors in an automated auditing tool can still be very inaccessible. Sometimes the thing that makes a website difficult to understand for a screen reader user is the absence of information, and that is a problem that is not identified in automated code scans.

They are usually defined as a list of elements that could represent a header, sidebar, footer or similar website layout elements, depending on your application’s design.

Links List for Print Styles | Adrian Roselli
I have long advocated for making useful print styles and providing users with pages that work on paper without eating their printer ink. My default styles typically have a rule to embed the URL of all links directly after the link text. The problem is that it can eat a lot of ink and not be very usable on paper. Collecting all the links at the end of a page as plain text footnotes mitigates this. Users who want to save paper can choose to not print the final page(s) with the links.
