Intrinsic Typography Is The Future Of Styling Text On The Web

When we style text for the Web, we define its characteristics at different breakpoints. Intrinsic Typography is an entirely different approach that attempts to style text based on its container instead of the viewport. Scott Kellum introduces us to the idea, together with some simple code examples, in this great primer.


TinyVid is an awesome free app for macOS, Windows, and Linux, that compresses video file size. Originally built for gamers sharing on Discord, it’s great for optimizing videos for embedding on a website, where every Kb counts. You can even change the resolution and framerate to squeeze the maximum speed out of your videos.

Nobody Is Flying To Join Google’s FLoC

FLoC (Federated Learning of Cohorts) is Google’s approach to cookie-free, allegedly privacy-friendly advertising. Following the news that WordPress may disable it by default, Dieter Bohn reports that all of the browsers that use Google’s Chromium have declined to use FloC, potentially throwing the future of web advertising into chaos.

JS Image Carver

There are many approaches to responsive images, but few as impressive as JS Image Carver, JavaScript code that is content-aware and able to resize an image, repositioning key elements to create a compacted view of the original. Oleksii Trekhleb walks us through this experimental code explaining the logic behind this awesome script.

It’s Earth Day 2021 this week, and to mark the occasion, the United Nations has collaborated with Google to promote four projects by designers exploring climate change through data visualization.
