Amazing Twitter Facelift

Twitter has redesigned it's homepage and My God! It's beautiful. I won't say that the old design wasn't any good but yes it was loosing it's charm somehow. But i guess this new homepage is lot more useful and attractive. Apart from the design work, what i like the most is the "latest trending topics" feature that you will only find if you're logged in to your account on twitter. Almost a month back, Twitter changed the follower and following page from basic style list to AJAX based list which is much more easier to use and good looking. Twitter has definitely grown into something big than what everyone expected. As for me, i always prefer Twitter over Orkut or Facebook, however i still cannot find my friends on Twitter as they are still hooked up to other old social networks. But i guess an year down the line, with more twitter awareness, my friends in India will start…

Hey…What’s Up Doc? Redesigning?

If you have been on my blog recently, you would have noticed small changes frequently being made to my blog design. In the last few days, i have tried many new stylings for my blog. I'm pretty sure that i will stay with the present look that i have given to my blog. ;) The cross browser compatibility has been a major challenge for me, in so called redesigning of the blog. On my Samsung SyncMaster 226BW display monitor wherein i have a 1680 x 1050 resolution, SharatJaswal.com seems to do well with all the browsers. I have tested it on Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer 7, Google Chrome, Opera and Safari. So far so good. All looks good. However when i see my blog on my Sony Vaio Laptop,  it seems that the tab which shows "Most Popular Posts" and "Most Commented Posts" is slightly falling off the theme particularly in Internet Explorer. I am so fed up of…

Professional Blogger, Professional Theme?

Ever since, i decided that i am going to be a Pro at blogging, i have had too many chat sessions with my friends and fellow webmasters regarding the same. I wanted to know as to what i should be doing to make a start. Surprisingly, the top two answers were unanimous. All said: "Content is the King". Well, no doubts about that. Get a custom design for your blog. A professional one! Well, i don't think anyone has any doubts about the first point. Content is the King, and no one can deny that. It's the very basic thing. But the second point is what made me thought. A custom design for my blog. Well, it wasn't a problem for sure since i own a web designing company/service. A new design would have been a piece of cake. But what i thought was whether the visitors really look at your design? or they are there for the content…
