This morning I pushed out my fifth blog theme, fligstripe. For Firefox and Webkit users, it’s 100% CSS using overlayed gradients. For Opera and IE users, it’s 100% screenshots of what it would look like if their browser supported CSS3 gradients.
I was going for a really clean design, which meant removing things like category navigation, tag clouds, and even the search box. I’m also using a few new third-party plugins and libraries:
- Infinite Scroll so there’s no more digging through pages to find a post
- WP Minify to minify my CSS
- Modernizr to detect CSS gradient support and other features
I have a good feeling about this theme and hope it will last at least a year before I start to dislike it, as my previous 2 themes have only lasted a few months.
Feedback is welcome and appreciated!
