HTML5 and CSS3 have very quickly moved from being tentative new standards to the base standards for every major desktop and mobile browser. HTML5 is now just HTML, a modular, living standard that no longer needs a version number.

Now that we are no longer fighting over platforms, it’s time to put the specs aside and revisit the construction of user interface: how do we raise the bar for stellar user interface on the web?

Meta Refresh is a follow-up to DocType HTML5 from 2010-11 and is a conference on web UI engineering.

Designing in the Browser

Submitted Apr 3, 2012

To show why designing websites directly in the web browser makes sense.


When it comes to web design, typically, a designer is expected to provide visual mockups and a front-end developer is expected to convert the mockups into working HTML/CSS/JS code. Rarely do people design directly in the browser. In fact, my experience says that most designers consider it to be infeasible and many clients find it surprising.

With this talk I hope to show how designing in the browser can impact the approach towards making web interfaces.

Speaker bio
