24sata.hr goes non-standards

24sata, the first Croatian news portal ever designed with web standards was moved from carefully structured, web standards compliant to a non-valid inaccessible web site. Unfortunately, it does happen.

When we were developing the first incarnation, we learned a lot about Mac browsers and also introduced Faux borders, the advanced CSS positioning concept, which after that became widely recognized. When the original version of the site was launched back in March 2005, we already had significant amount of CSS trials, errors and solutions for future projects development. Working on such a project was invaluable experience.

I won’t comment on the new design, interface, IA or user experience in general. Instead, we’ve snapped a few screen shots for the archive. If you care, take a look at high-resolution shots. See the new site.
