Impressive, but why? Who uses IE 5.5?
(I'm the creator) See my reply to the other Daniel in this thread.
Ah, then that's valid. I suppose most of my clients are trendy startups where Chrome is > 50% of the usage share. Most of my side-projects as well are aimed at designers and don't support IE at all.
I'm the creator! Ask me anything.
Also, seeing as you all are designers, I'd love feedback on the design. One person on HN said that many things seemed "too big". Is this something I should change? How do you like the button/input/navbar styles?
Sort of elevator pitch: What is your USP against a framework like purecss.io ?
They came down to 4.5kb minified and gzipped. If you leave stuff out you even get less. They don't need JS either.
Min has a substantially better navbar, better browser support, and messages. Min is also 4.5x smaller. Additionally, although Pure is generally pretty good about this their inputs are a bit too prescriptive (too much work to make it look different) for my tastes.
it's really small but it also doesn't really do much.
Min does enough for the vast majority of websites. What features do you feel are missing? (I'm the creator.)
Cool, it's really small. And I thought it was a irony like vanilla js
(I'm the creator) Thanks! What are your favorite parts?
Why would you tout IE5.5 at this point?
Cool, either way. :)
I personally love: http://semantic-ui.com
Many projects for government or large organisations can require ancient browser support where properties like box-sizing (a feature of many modern front-end frameworks) isn't an option.
Part of it is what Tom said: it's still in high use in China and in businesses.
Additionally, it keeps things simple. By using CSS features that are a decade old that means that there are a decade of performance improvements and bugtesting that have gone into them. It means that there are fewer browser bugs that need to be squashed, and it also keeps the CSS 100% valid. If I neglected IE5.5 I might be able to save 5% of the general size or add in funky gradients on everything but Min is already extremely small and I'm pretty sure you all would tar and feather me for adding in funky gradients on everything.
Will try right now. Need the grid for my client's IE 7.
Great! Let me know how it turns out. If you have any questions just ask.
Also, if it's a public URL I can add it to the list of sites using Min 2.0. Is it?
