    What does get me a little annoyed is that it is being replaced by a port that isn’t an open standard.

    I don't think it's Apple's goal that everyone adopts the Lightning connector over the headphone jack. Besides the Lightning Earpods that come with the new iPhone, none of the new headphones from Beats and Apple use a Lightning connector to deliver audio. The new BeatsX and Airpods have Lightning ports for charging. I doubt we see Lightning ports in future Macbooks and other devices just to plug in our headphones.

    Over the years, the things we connect to our devices have steadily transitioned from wired to wireless. Mice, keyboards, network equipment, printers, speakers, etc. Now it's time we all ditch the wire for our headphones. Next will probably be the wire we use for charging.

    It might not be that long before the Lightning connector goes away too.

    I use an Apple Magic Mouse. I find it cumbersome and sometimes awkward to use the trackpad for precise movements.

    The examples in this post are kind of genius. Will definitely use this trick as a fallback for when JavaScript isn't available.

    Thank you for sharing this. I had forgotten about this site and it's full of little gems like this.

    If anybody needs a vector file of the new icon, you can swipe it from their favicon.

    EDIT — Or better yet, check out their Brand Resources.

    This is quite unexpected. Past redesigns of CSS Tricks were always bolder and more visually interesting. This one in comparison looks very vanilla. Everything about the CSS Tricks "brand" appears to be gone. There are some things about this that I like — the typography is very clean — but overall it feels like there's a lot missing.

    This is all mostly very good, but it's SUPER annoying that scrolling through the menu changes the URL, forcing me to hit the back button way too many times to find the previous site I was on.

    Ok, that's pretty clever.

    Really easy for me to scroll to fast past slides before being able to read them.

    Hover over the "I'm feeling lucky" button over and over until it says "I'm feeling puzzled" for a really neat game.
