Today’s freebie is a super minimal and flat browser, something you might use when showing web design mock-ups or displaying works in your portfolio. It comes with two colour schemes lighter and darker. Enjoy!
Hey everybody, it’s been quite some time since we published anything in Maze of Minds blog. But today we have a little surprise for you. We just launched a little website called Free Photos. All images on this site are free for personal and commercial use and licensed under CC0.
Now you will find only six images, but we will be adding more every week. We hope you like them and find them useful. Any feedback will be appreciated. Thanks :)
Loads.in is a simple and free website checker tool that checks how fast your website loads. It also has few useful functions. For instance, you can choose different countries and browsers for website load testing. Really handy and easy to use.
This website offers advanced PNG files compression. TinyPNG uses smart lossy compression techniques to reduce the file size of your PNG files. By selectively decreasing the number of colours in the image, fewer bytes are required to store the data. The effect is nearly invisible but it makes a very large difference in file size.
TinyPNG will make your web page load faster. I used it few times and was pleased with results.
In this Build talk, famous designer Jason Santa Maria teaches us to look at typefaces with a discerning eye, different approaches to typographic planning, how typography impacts the act of reading, and how to choose and combine appropriate typefaces from an aesthetic and technical point of view. A must-see video for all web designers.
Also don’t forget to check other videos from Build talk on Vimeo.
Few days ago I found this Photoshop plugin. The interesting part about this plugin is that it lets you convert your Photoshop layers to pure CSS3. I just used it for few days and so far I am happy with the results. You can download it from website http://css3ps.com/ for free. It supports Photoshop CS5 and CS6 versions.
