Today’s delicious posts is all about design. If you looking for tips and tutorials in CSS, then check out the CSS links I found. There is a lot of good information about CSS design and coding. I also found a set of  150 free paper textures for you to use in your designs. If you are looking for design tools, check the link I found about the 10 most popular Firefox plugins for designers.

  • “Rounded corners are a common CSS effect these days. There are several ways to accomplish this effect, and how you go about implementing rounded corners will depend largely on what purpose they will serve in your design. Keep this in mind, because it can save you hours of unnecessary work. In certain cases, rounded corners can be accomplished very easily, and in others they may be the single most challenging part of the design. This article will attempt to point you directly to the solution you need.”

  • “undling all the best free downloads for new computer owners, re-installers, would-be geeks, or anyone who wants to save time installing the best stuff out there. This is our 2009 Lifehacker Pack for Windows computers.”
  • WebKit browsers paved the way with CSS based gradients. Now Firefox 3.6 is out and is supporting them as well, which makes using them for progressive enhancement all the more appealing. More good news, CSS3 gradients fall into the camp where you can specify fallbacks (i.e. images) so that browsers that don’t support them just use the image instead.

    But wait… if you need to use an image anyway, why bother with declaring the gradient with CSS? That is kind of how I felt for a long time, but there is one important aspect that makes it worth it: browsers that support them don’t load the image fallback. One less HTTP Request = all the faster your site will load.”
