Sometimes less really is more. When it comes to Less CSS, this is especially true. While it has more functionality than classic CSS, Less CSS has a more elegant syntax. Less CSS is an improvement over classic CSS syntax. It is not a technology supported by browsers, but can certainly be used with any kind of website. It has tools and libraries that can be converted into actual CSS, which browsers do understand, but Less CSS reduces the redundancy of standard CSS, replacing it with shiny, elegant syntax.Read More ›
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is the de facto scripting language used to style the World Wide Web. It is a powerful, flexible and simple scripting language for styling web pages. While it is arguably the most popular styling technique for the web, it is not that popular in other presentation systems. I personally miss it in desktop application development.
CSS v.3 has improved to such a degree that designing web pages is now easy and fun. Let’s take a more in depth look at the some of the improvements made to CSS 3.

When I was a child I spent my days collecting and exchanging trading cards of my childhood TV shows. I owned hundreds of paperback books where Sailor Moon and Garfield sticker cards rested, never to be seen again. But I wasn’t the only one doing it. It was the trend back then. The trading card fever was so high that it wouldn’t be surprising if you stopped in the middle of the street to exchange these with a lost soul looking for that missing puzzle piece.Read More ›
