    Today’s read: 16 Pixels For Body Copy. Anything Less Is A Costly Mistake. 

    Smashin Magazine

    16 Pixels For Body Copy. Anything Less Is A Costly Mistake

    A very good article on why we should keep bigger (and better) font sizes. I totally agree with the author. I hate the small font size Facebook uses. That gives me a bad head ache and I always use the browser zoom for better readability.

    I know what you’re thinking. “Did he just say 16 pixels? For body copy? Obnoxiously big! 12 pixels is ideal for most websites.”

    I’d like to persuade you otherwise.

    Have a nice read.

    Today’s read: How To Permanently Delete Your Account on Popular Websites 

    How To Permanently Delete Your Account on Popular Websites via Smashing Magazine.

    I had to struggle a lot to get rid of my orkut account! It was not very easy. When I was doing that I really wished to have some FAQs and guidelines which I read and understand. But tough luck, I didn’t find anything then. But I found this article in Smashing Magazine today, and I think this is really useful.

    We all have an increasing number of sites and online services we’re members of, and sometimes it all gets a little overwhelming. At times, we just need to delete our memberships to some sites, either in an effort to simplify our lives or just because we’ve grown tired of a particular site or service.

    What we often don’t realize when signing up for all these accounts, though, is how difficult it can be to permanently delete our accounts when we’ve had enough. Some require complicated, multi-step processes that can stretch over the course of days (or weeks). Others take less time, but still require multiple steps by the user.

    Today’s read: The seven deadly sins of JavaScript implementation 

    A Smashing Magazine article on the common “sins” of JavaScript implementation by Christian Heilmann.

    Using JavaScript has become increasingly easy over the last few years. Whereas back in the day we needed to know the quirks of every browser, now many libraries such as jQuery, YUI, Dojo and MooTools allow someone who doesn’t even know JavaScript to spruce up boring HTML documents with impressive and shiny effects. By piggy-backing on the CSS selector engine, we have moved away from the complexity and inconsistencies of the DOM and made things much easier.

    If you look at some of the code that has been released, though, we do seem to have taken a step backwards. In gaining easier access, we also became a bit sloppy with our code. Finding clearly structured, easy-to-maintain jQuery code is quite tough, which is why many plug-ins do the same thing. Writing one yourself is faster than trying to fathom what other developers have done.
