Firebug (Lite) supported in IE, Opera, and Safari

Some people are unaware of this particular tool.

January 19th, 2010 at 9:00am — Comments: (1) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Design

Most designers and developers use Firebug constantly in Firefox, but what some people still don't know is that there is a lite version of Firebug called Firebug Lite for IE, Opera, and Safari.

Even though it's limited, it still has the same look and feel.

If you want to know more about Firebug, check out the Fireday review of Firebug or check out the Firebug web site.

Default CSS for HTML 4

What are the default HTML settings for Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)?

February 21st, 2008 at 6:00am — Comments: (0) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Design

Cascading Style Sheet

Designers are using baseline, or "reset," style sheets more and more to clear out the existing settings of default styles in the browsers to create a more uniform way of designing web pages.

After looking at some recent polls about "Which CSS Reset do you use?", I thought about this in a different way.

Recently, I've been working on a project where I wanted all OL/UL tags to display a certain way throughout the entire pages, but at one section, I need the tags to display normally as if the CSS wasn't there.

The IA One Sheeters provided are Wireframes, Heuristic Evaluation, and Usability Testing. Since she started building the first three, see if you can create your own for your own business.

Is GIMP better than Photoshop?

I pose the question to the audience.

January 23rd, 2007 at 6:00am — Comments: (4) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Design

For most of the design community, Adobe's Photoshop has always been there for you. You create your layered graphics and export it to your site and everything is well and good.

But now, there is a new face on the scene.

GIMP is a raster graphics program that can easily replace MS Paint. But can it replace Photoshop? I'll leave that argument to the GrimThing.com. They've posted an article about who would win in the battle between GIMP and Photoshop.

So you think you want to be a manager?

Boxes and Arrows writer Erin Malone discusses her transition from designer to manager.

January 16th, 2007 at 5:30am — Comments: (0) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Design

You have stars in your eyes, right? You want the title, you want the prestige, oh..and you probably want the money? Making a transition from a worker to a manager is difficult and, trust me, it may not be greener on the other side.

Erin Malone was promoted from a designer to a manager and now that she's a manager, she's made some interesting realizations. Her article, "So you think you want to be a manager?", is right on target and recommend reading it before taking that managerial position.

I've been there before and I'm not envious. :-)

What would you say if someone called you this morning and asked you to write up a quote for a blog for their business?

Would you freeze or would you quote a price similar to what Pearsonified charges?
