Hereâ€™s a little hodgepodge of videos Iâ€™ve recently bookmarked (and watched). I couldnâ€™t decide if each one of them should be a separate blog post or if I should do this combined list post thing. If I had a lot more to say about each video I would have split them off, but I went with the combined post and fewer words here. Let me know in the comments if you have a preference on that kind of thing.
Hereâ€™s Tom Scott explaining why the web is such a mess
Cookies. It all cookies fault. Kinda. Also humans.
This is the same Tom that did that super neat video that updated itâ€™s own title with the view count.
Except the fact that the
:hover was on the
<li> itself rather than a link that went somewhere sensible, but hey, I guess itâ€™s slightly better than the actual Discord markup where itâ€™s
Heydon gets all weird about progressive enhancment
I canâ€™t embed it here because, even though it looks like Heydon switched over to Vimeo rather than just straight up
<video> tags, the privacy settings have it locked to briefs.video only.
I liked the point about â€œthe basic layout is not a broken layout,â€� except, doesnâ€™t it seem like in that exact case it wouldnâ€™t matter if you wrapped the
grid-template-rows in a
@supports or not? I love that
@supports is a thing, and even more so now that weâ€™ve passed the awkward years where
@supports itself didnâ€™t have full browser support, but I donâ€™t find myself reaching for it that much, as itâ€™s only really useful if you need to do something different than â€œjust let it not work,â€� which I donâ€™t find terribly common.
Thereâ€™s a blog version of this video, too.
Jessica Chan challenges William Candillon to a CSSBattle
Like literally CSSBattle, the website.
They go back and forth trying to figure out how to make this little spiky virus-looking thing. I totally relate to their approaches! Neither of them are like amazingly clever with either the HTML or CSS â€” they just try to get it done. Thatâ€™s why I could never get into CSSBattle myself. I appreciate peopleâ€™s trickery (duh), but my actual CSS writing style is almost like verbose-on-purpose.
