A lot of people have been using CSS3 media queries recently to deliver different styles of their web site to users based on the size of their browser screen. Usually this comes in the form of a ‘normal’ 960px width site, and will also deliver a more condensed version for mobile platforms such as the iPad and smartphones. I decided to go a different route and create a demo that delivers content for a 960px width site, and also delivers an enhanced version for users with monitors that have a Full HD resolution (1920px width).
Here is a list of some of the CSS3 features employed on this demo:
- Media Queries
Please take a look at the demo I’ve created and feel free to browse the source to see how things were done. Users with a 1920px width monitor will get to see the CSS3 Media Query in action as it converts the site to a two column layout that takes advantage of the entire width of the site. Also, if anyone is wondering what the image slider is on the demo page, it is a jQuery slider called Nivo Slider.
