The Ultimate Icons Collection


Almost certainly the biggest collection of quality icons on the web. Make sure you check the license before using any of them.

AB Tests


This site lists a number of A/B testing examples and results that have been made public.

Blind Text Generator


Lorem Ipsum text has been the standard text usage for using in design concepts but the Blind Text Generator creates more natural looking text.

This goes quite nicely with Inspect Element’s post, Humor in Web Design.

Build a Thermometer Controlled Page with jQuery
