Keeping aspect ratio of YouTube videos

Experiments in fixed aspect ratios is a handy CSS technique from Stephanie Liu for displaying video embeds in a responsive website without losing their aspect ratio.


<div class="container">
  <iframe class="embed"></iframe>

The CSS:

.container {
  position: relative;
  width: 100%;
  height: 0;
  padding-top: 56.25% // 9 / 16 * 100%
.embed {
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  left: 0;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;

CSS ICON, not just a decent sized collection of icons made entirely with CSS but also a very slick animated function to swap between two icons.

In The Future of Loading CSS, Jake Archibald takes a look at how best to load CSS. Up to now, as CSS normally blocks page rendering, we've usually combined all styles into one file and loaded them after the main content has been downloaded. However, an update to the Chrome browser, bringing it into line with Microsoft's Edge browser, could help to change CSS loading best practise. The general idea is that we load multiple smaller CSS files that in turn render the content that directly follows it, resulting in a more progessive page render.
