HTML Body Background Color

A silly little thing, but it amazes me how many website developers don’t bother setting the body background-color for their sites, assuming that all browsers have a white background. I set my browser’s background color to grey to make sure that I don’t forget to do this myself.

AVM2 Performance – Sprite Alpha vs. Fill Alpha

Consider a black box with 50% opacity. A sprite with a black rectangular fill in it.

Which would render quicker?

  1. A sprite where the black fill has 50% alpha (0.5)
  2. A sprite with 50% alpha containing a solid fill

Anyone done any tests?

Another portfolio website I built for a friend. It uses a similar engine to the website I built for Maciek, but this time makes use of PureMVC and has a JavaScript hack to make the mouse-wheel work on Mac OS X.
