This site demonstrates a few ways to eliminate the duplicate characters bug, which is one of the most annoying issues in IE 6. The bug causes the last character(s) within a float to appear twice, the second instance being outside the float itself. This issue has stolen many hours of my life and caused more than a couple of headaches. Thanks to Jonathan Snook for the pointer.
Instructables is a website bought to you by the partners at www.squid-labs.com. We make a lot of stuff, for business, and for pleasure. We’ve been looking for a long time for a convenient system for documenting our how-to projects, and the things we make, but it simply didn’t exist. We decided we’d have to develop it ourself, and here it is, it will evolve as we grow to meet our own rigorous demands, and those of our users. Principal in our demands is convenience – it should take less time to document a project than it did to build it.
37signals has set up a flickr stream showing screenshots of various UIs, most of which are Web-related (tag: screensaroundtown). There are some nice components in there, though some of the shots don’t seem to fit the group, like the install window for Adium.
I like the concept for its simplicity of purpose and implementation – it’s a refreshing break from the large sites that gather cool designs from around the Web.
