Brent Simmons on the new Web

In “Things I Learned Doing Responsive Web Design:”

It looks like the web is being born again, again.

This article is a great summary and it’s also kind of inspiring for me, because as much as I’ve tried to keep up, I’ve had the feeling for a while now that I’m falling behind with things like responsiveness and other cutting-edge CSS tools – and Simmons’s roundup does a nice job of pulling a lot of things together and reaffirming my impression that all of this is making the web simpler, not more complex. 1 But while it’s simplifying in many ways, it’s becoming a much more diverse and beautiful landscape. And like he says, it feels like a bit of a renaissance.
