Apple introduced their new Macbook Pro on Monday, and the hot topic of conversation was its astounding 5.1 million pixel Retina display. While most people asked about the price, the portability, or the battery life, my immediate response was, "What does it mean for web design?"
- Web type will keep our text sharp and readable.
- Where pixelated bitmap images fall short, CSS techniques will keep our interface design crisp and user friendly.
- Working with new technologies like font icons will save our icons from a fuzzy, un-scalable death.
- Continuing to perfect responsive imagery will result in a solution that serves optimal images to every device with performance in mind.
