20 Best New Sites, August 2021

A good website tells a story; that’s the message in this month’s collection of the 20 Best New Sites. Each month we gather together the most interesting sites launched in the previous four weeks and package them for your enjoyment. In this month’s edition, you’ll find portfolio sites, typography, illustration, and more.

Figstack

There’s nothing more frustrating than staring at a bunch of code and not knowing what it does. Figstack is a game-changing app that’s going to revolutionize how we learn to code.

On the <dl>

One of the most underrated HTML elements is the description list. It’s a semantic way of marking up name-value pairs that’s been supported since forever but is constantly overlooked.

Google Overhauls Webpage Titles

In a typically opaque move, Google has confirmed that it has changed how it formulates web page titles in its search listings — it ignores the title tags you set 20% of the time. What Google used to do is rewrite page titles based on the search query; now, it rewrites page titles based on the actual subject of the page.

Macro

Zoom is a super-useful service that’s deadly boring to use. If you’re as sick of Zoom meetings as everyone else on the planet, you’ll love Macro: a Zoom client for creatives that lets you customize your appearance. You can join any Zoom meeting with Macro, and everyone will see you through the filters, shapes, and reactions you create.
