PictureFill is the same concept as the picture element, just using spans as a safe, cross-browser compatible alternative. If you can’t wait until the picture element is fully supported by browsers, PictureFill is a light, easy to use solution
If you want to make better products, if you want faster development cycles then embed UX into the development teams and make us jointly responsible for the same objective: a working website.

A device-agnostic approach also takes into account infinite combinations of screen resolution, input method, browser capability, and connection speed.
During this tutorial we will be building the fantastic Timeline Portfolio as seen in an earlier tutorial. We will be using some responsive techniques as well as CSS3 animations, Sass and a little bit of jQuery.
@media queries are not selectors and therefore do not have any weight. In contrast, *:not(#foo) has more weight than *:not(.foo) because the pseudo class is evaluating selectors, and selectors always add weight.

A conclusion Guy Podjarny makes is that the “HTTP overhead of a request & response is often ~1 KB, so files smaller than that should definitely be inlined” which leads him to the statement that “testing shows you should almost never inline files bigger than 4 KB”.
Perhaps it's taken you each and every day since Ethan Marcotte dropped the responsive web design (RWD) bomb. Maybe it happened instantly. Most likely, it was somewhere in between. Inevitably, you realised it. Responsive web design (RWD) is hard. Part of the difficulty is that it's tricky to communicate visually.
Our previous set of tools simply can't accommodate the complexities of relaying responsive design, visually. Let's take a closer look at four apps promising to aid responsive design that have managed to separate themselves from the rest.

The off-canvas flyout menu has taken over as the primary navigation pattern for mobile layouts — even some desktop layouts have jumped on board. And for good reason: An off-canvas menu is a great way to maintain context while giving the user a lot of additional information.

A flat hamburger icon may not be ideal on a responsive website. Using the word MENU (and making it look like a button) could be more helpful for visitors. This does not mean that users do not understand the hamburger/sandwich
In this post, I’ll discuss a few excellent open source projects for building responsive navigation menus.
