100ms is the ultimate goal since that feels instantaneous. 20% faster than a competitor will be noticed. 1000ms is a practical goal, which refers to "Speed Index" (visually and functionally ready) not window.onload.
The following is a guest post by Zach Saucier. Zach cooks up some pretty inspiring animations over on CodePen. I couldn't be happier that he wanted to share some of the tricks he uses to create them, especially because they are things we all strive for: efficiency, reusability, practicality, and speed.
Anchor links1 may have a target attribute which controls what happens when that link is clicked. One of the possible values of that attribute is _blank, which tells the browser to open a new window (or tab, if that's the user's preference) when that link is clicked.
A lot of people, me included, wish we could use // for single line comments in CSS. Tab Atkins explains why it's probably not going to happen, but weirdly enough, you can actually use them now if you're careful.
The following is a guest post by Jack Doyle, author of the GreenSock Animation Platform (GSAP). Jack does a lot of work with animations in the browser and has discovered that the generic opinion that "CSS is faster" just isn't true. It's more than that, as well. I'll let him explain.
Sometimes I literally can't remember how to write a for loop. Not like funny ha-ha I can't remember how to spell "psychology" but really I can figure it out in a few seconds. Like, go to Google, type in "for loop PHP", click on a promising result, copy and paste, then alter it.

You use it when, uhm, you want a button on your page that users can click, right? Well, unfortunately it's a bit more complicated than that. It's not too bad though, let's figure it out.
Jeff Croft argues that because the web standards movement did such a good job, the "HTML and CSS guru" of old is a commoditized job. "Diversify or die", he says, meaning level up your abilities in other web tech to remain employed.
Adam Morse with a set of named colors that are a lot more, well, palatable. Comes as CSS classes or variables set up in Sass, LESS, or Stylus.
a single person who you have in mind as the perfect person to read what you write, almost like a letter, even if they never will, or a person who you’re sure will read it because of a connection you have to them (hi Mom!).
I'm no English major, but as a writer and consumer of loads of educational (mostly tech) writing, I've come to notice a number of words and phrases that come up fairly often and don't add anything to the writing. In fact, they might detract from it.
GROUP HUG! It's that time of year I give ya'll the biggest warmest THANKS I can. CSS-Tricks is the foundation of my career and makes my life possible. And thus it is to you, dear reader, that I owe everything.
A reader recently wrote in asking me what the DOM was. They said they've heard it mentioned and eluded to, but aren't sure they really understand it.
