The Perception of Control | UX Booth
Every day, at the street by my house, I press the “walk” button, and I wait. Each time, as soon as the traffic cycle is complete, I get the walk signal. On a whim, one day I didn’t press the button… but at the end of the traffic cycle, I got the walk signal. The button I press every day has absolutely no impact on when the light will change. Is it still worth having the button?

CSS Grid: More flexibility with minmax() by Michelle Barker on CodePen
One of the things that can put people off trying out CSS Grid is there’s so much choice when it comes to defining your grid layout and placing your content, so it can be hard to know until you’ve been using it a while which is going to to be the best option for a particular layout. It’s only recently that I got around to fully appreciating the power of minmax() and how it can be such a huge helper when coding many of the layouts I’m required to build, so I’d like to share one way in which it’s been beneficial to me.

CSS grid is AMAZING! However, if you need to support users of IE11 and below, or Edge 15 and below, grid won't really work as you expect (more info here). This site is a solution for you so you can start to progressively enhance without fear! Things to Note: CSS grid allows for specified styling using the vertical area as well as horizontal. Flexbox doesn't allow for this, so we'll be using fixed heights in these examples.

As a result, there have been some unfortunate interpretations. Using table markup inevitably results in a visual layout, which has led some to abandon HTML tables altogether. Tables: bad.

Short note on what CSS display properties do to table semantics | The Paciello Group – Your Accessibility Partner (WCAG 2.0/508 audits, VPAT, usability and accessible user experience)
The CSS display properties are powerful. You can change the visual display of elements to match your desired styling, but sometimes doing this can have an unintended effect of nuking the semantics of the elements, as conveyed to screen reading software, in the browser accessibility tree. Screen readers and other assistive tech, in general, do not have direct access to the HTML DOM, they are provided access to a subset of information in the HTML DOM via Accessibility APIs. Sometimes what an element represents in the HTML DOM is not how it is represented in the accessibility tree.

The key difference between a website and a web app is… highly contested. On the whole, I'd say the more links there are, the more site-like, and the more buttons, the more app-like. If it includes a page with a form, it's probably a kind of site. If it essentially is a form, you might call it an app. In any case, your web 'product' is really just interactive content, consumed and transmitted by an app we call a 'browser'.

Most programming languages have support for variables. But sadly, CSS has lacked support for native variables from the very beginning. You write CSS? Then no variables for you.

Make Your Site Faster with Preconnect Hints | Viget
Requesting an external resource on a website or application incurs several round-trips before the browser can actually start to download the resource. These round-trips include the DNS lookup, TCP handshake, and TLS negotiation (if SSL is being used). Depending on the page and the network conditions, these round-trips can add hundreds of milliseconds of latency, or more. If you are requesting resources from several different hosts, this can add up fast, and you could be looking at a page that feels more sluggish than it needs to be, especially on slower cellular connections, flaky wifi, or congested networks.
