Over the past two years we have seen a lot of cool things being done with CSS, but this might be the coolest one to date. It works just like a Windows desktop, but it is done completely in CSS.
What is interesting is to see that most of the positioning was done with unordered and definition lists. The CSS code is clean so this could make an excellent case study for any CSS developers and goes along well with my Learning CSS entry.
The project isn’t complete since Trovster has taken a break from it, but for what he has accomplished so far I must say that I am impressed.
Other tidbits about the project:
- If you do http://desktop.trovster.com/desktop/?name=YOURNAME — it’ll change the start-menu name to your input.
- If you do http://desktop.trovster.com/desktop/[email protected] — it’ll change the user icon if the email address is associated with the Gravatar service.
- If you do http://desktop.trovster.com/desktop/[email protected] — it’ll add a Gmail Notifier icon to the system tray area!
