Sometimes I find myself having daydreams and awake from them with mathematical equations or genius web design ideas, well this time I awoke with a half baked idea of what browsers could be like in 2010. I know what your thinking “oh god here he goes again”!
I have had to question my view on laying out design’s with elastic layouts using the measurement Em’s, Elastic websites that zoom in or out with the text size have always been somewhat of the Holy Grail for me as far as layouts are concerned, and I think a lot of web designers agree with me. But is the extra torment and toil to make your design’s elastic worth the hassle if web browsers including Internet Explorer are supporting the new zoom feature?
I just wanted to highlight the latest release of blog and publishing extraordinaire WordPress to the public; Ella 2.1, Named after the famous Jazzer Ella Fitzgerald. I think its a great update and my website installation / upgrade was flawless. There’s some extra features added and some major holes in PHP that have been plugged.
The impact of blogs on web usability Is something I am noticing constantly. Firstly lets all agree that the most frequented websites on the Internet are blogs, and secondly lets agree that blogs are here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future. The impact that blogs have had on personal publishing and news distribution has been phenomenal but the lasting impact in the post-blog Internet will change web usability and web design forever.
