    Btw you have the flickr issue in Safari when hovering over the album art.

    This is one fix for that.

    .no-flickr {
    -webkit-transform: translateZ(0);
    -moz-transform: translateZ(0);
    -ms-transform: translateZ(0);
    -o-transform: translateZ(0);
    transform: translateZ(0);

    Then apply the code to the flickering elements. The titles are flickering.

    When are you all going to make me pay again for access to the web portal? I want to give you more money!

    Uuuuuuuuuuh. SO many experience issues. Brand personality? If a friend recommended this site, or I entered from a search result and the first thing I saw was the "new website" scrolling I'd be very confused.

    The footer is weird to access, and confusing. Since no scrollbar existed I had no clue a footer was even there...

    Product pages are jerky, and confusing to navigate since the accordion radically changes the view.

    A lot of the other simplistic approaches don't bother me...since as you said it's a brand personality, but you can convey a brand while still having a good user experience.

    Love the energy of the site. Here are a few thoughts from browsing it briefly. If anyone from Clearleft looks in.


    • I feel like the "We see you through" section should have all the columns equal height.

    • Anyone else feel like the "Client Stories" blocks should have a hover effect? I also feel like each should be clickable, or maybe make the "clickable area" a bit more obvious. Underline? Icon symbolizing link next to the text?

    • Authors in "Clear Thinking" should click to their individual team page.

    • "Get the clearletter" button in footer isn't vertically aligned.


    • Filter should close when a visitor clicks outside of the dropdown.

    So many of these come and go. Anyone have experience using this one? None of them have created the much desired iOS app to accompany them.

    Niice is still my fav.

    Visually very cool effects! All are very contingent on the use case. And really in most cases I feel they are excessive, and overly elaborate. The effect is removing the user from the context of the interface that they are searching. Why not simply live filter the content below instead of completely removing the existing interface when searching?

    Niice is my recommendation. It's pretty close to perfection.

  • Posted to New 13" Macbook w/ Touchbar or Old 15" Macbook Retina for Designing?, Jan 19, 2017

    @Sandeep I'd go for last generations MacBook Pro. It's a great machine, and it's not a 1st generation device with all the inherit gremlins, and problems that come with new tech.

    If you like the Touchbar concept you can hook up an iPad via Duet and with a bluetooth keyboard + mouse you'll have the functionality integrated on the iPad screen. I've been using it, and it's a fun way to experiment with the new UI. I've mostly just used Safari's tab navigation as it is useful. I haven't found any other Touchbar features that have benefits that stand out. It's faster to change volume and brightness with hardware keys (less taps), and a lot of functionality just takes longer to get to with the Touchbar.
