Mozilla Hacks Weekly, August 11th 2011

It’s time again for the link picks of the week from the Mozilla Developer Engagement Team!

Robert has passed on the baton this week and it’s now my turn (yes, another Rob) to bring you our list of links for this week. Like Robert, I find these link posts fantastic as it’s massively interesting to see what the other members of the Developer Engagement team are inspired by each week.

As always, if you have any tips for us on what to read, or thoughts on our links this week, please don’t hesitate to write a comment below!

    I have to say I think my favorite out of all these was Janet’s link. I am a beginner designer (even though I’ve been doing this for around 4 years now) and I’ve been keeping my website widths at a fixed size and it would look the same on every screen size. This has given me a new look on how to standardize my sites and make them more modern. Thanks!
