The Fine Arts of Engineering
Creating a website these days is a bit different than a years ago, however it shares the major challenge - interoperability and compatibility. Back in the dark times during reign of Internet Explorer 6 it was tricky to have a website that looked the same on each of market browsers. Especially that some major player named Firefox started implementing various nice features, while leaving popular browser behind. Developers either had to choose to target older browsers, leave most users with weird looking websites - or use the proper approach with various tricks and hacks to make Internet Exploder (nicknamed) work in a bit more modern fashion.
Now web designers have a lot more expressive options to design websites with CSS and if properly used it looks pretty much pixel perfect on each desktop browser. The new requirement is to have a websites that work properly on devices with different displays, starting from small mobile phones for up to 4K monitors. With proper technique the layout of a website can stretch and rearrange depending on the device screen resolution. On large devices the content can be presented in columns similar to those of paper newspaper while switching to rows on devices with smaller screen real estate.
