The devil is in the details Detail is probably one of the most important values for a designer, an eye for detail should be in our DNA. As a perfectionist I like my designs to be pixel perfect. I am allergic for “jaggies” and ugly compressed artifacts in icons and images on websites. Apple’s Retina revolution is an interesting evolution that is turning the design world upside down. The Retina display has a high enough pixel density to prevent pixelation to be noticable to the human eye. Therefore a Retina display is a lot sharper and more pleasant to look at. Apple has doubled the amount of horizontal and vertical pixels on the iPhone, The New iPad, and now also on the new MacBookPro. The Retina revolution is irreversible, and other companies have already started or will also start implementing this new Retina technology.
Le Viewport désigne schématiquement la surface de la fenêtre du navigateur. Cependant, la notion de viewport sur un appareil mobile est différente de celle sur un écran de bureau : sur mobile, le navigateur ne dispose pas de "fenêtre" réelle, ni de barres de défilement car tout est prévu pour naviguer de manière tactile.
The display resolution of a screen describes the total amount of pixels available in each dimension—for example, the original iPhone has a resolution of 320×480 and a 2012 27-inch iMac clocks in at 2560×1440. Some people use terms like “VGA” resolution for some of the more popular resolutions (VGA is 640×480). Don’t bother trying to memorize all of them, as there are too many screen sizes these days.
