Designing in a browser
#1
So who in here designs with a browser? With all the border radiuses, jQuery for animations and overall a more enhanced CSS there seems to be a less of a need for complicated designs when a simple color-schemed website can look just as sleek.

I personally design almost all of my designs in a browser. It can definitely get tricky at times, but it's easier for me because that's what I'm used to doing.

There will always be some things that are done more easily using a graphics design program than CSS, however. Designs that are more unique and creative are especially tricky to pull off in a browser.

You can't really design on a browser. You can design with Photoshop, for example. Coding is different.

Technically you can code what you're designing as you're designing it when you design in a browser

That's what I typically do, just to save time. I've seen a lot of people write out sketches on paper of their designs as well, which seems to work well for some people.

I usually do the same thing. Otherwise it consumes too much valuable time.

This is what I do right now, especially considering I'm only doing .X updates, tweaks and changes here and there to de-clutter our forum software's default layouts on some pages.
