Web fonts have been introduced in CSS3 and are a must in modern web design. Let's learn how to integrate web fonts into your existing web design.
Modern designs demand gentle touches to make the design cleaner. Historically, this was often found in the corners of elements instead of sharp corners that were created by controlling the softness of the corners. We help create designs that are cleaner and more modern. Until CSS3, this was done using images, which bloated up the site with extra images and scripts. In CSS3, we have a new property called border-radius that enables us to do exactly this with ease.
Most people don't know how to integrate gradients into their designs. Now that gradients are around and are a part of the CSS3 library, let us talk about how to use this new feature in the most effective way.
One of the cool new additions of gradients in CSS3 is the capability to create patterns using gradients. Let's learn how to create radial gradients, explore the logic behind its properties, and even see how to create a pattern with it.
One of the coolest effects that are around is shadows. Until CSS3, it was really hard to integrate shadows, as they involved using images and/or third-party tools such as Adobe Flash. With the help of CSS3, it is really easy for us to integrate shadows quickly and efficiently.
Until CSS3, colors were represented by RGB values. Computers have evolved and the need for more color combinations has grown. Let's shift our focus on a new color channel—the alpha channel.
