Black, white and red are the most popular colors in web design. In most cases one of these colors dominates over the others but sometimes we can see them all together in one website.

Take a look at the websites listed below – all of them look simply amazing thanks to a black- white-red color scheme! No doubt this color choice has been rather successful so far and there are high chances it’ll continue to be so.

Still, we appreciate your opinion on this topic. Do you like when the website colors contrast strongly with each other? What do you think about websites which enjoy the mixture of black, white and red?

As jQuery becomes a new tend in web design we suggest you to browse websites enhanced with jQuery tools. This way not only will you see successful examples of using jQuery tools but also understand if your website would benefit from adding these tools or not.

No doubt an article introducing Awesome jQuery Solutions for Online Portfolios is must read but to make the final decision you should also know what jQuery is all about.

According to jQuery team, “jQuery is a new kind of JavaScript Library. It is a fast and concise JavaScript Library that simplifies HTML document traversing, event handling, animating, and Ajax interactions for rapid web development. jQuery is designed to change the way that you write JavaScript”.

It seems jQuery provides outstanding user-interface components which might help you improve your website. Imagine – your website loads fast and looks like a Flash website but it has nothing to do with Flash! In other words jQuery allows you to add amazing animations to your website and Flash knowledge isn’t required! Everything can be done easily, fast and free of charge.

Please remember jQuery is free to download, however you can donate any amount you wish. Thus you’ll take an opportunity to thank the development team for a great solution they provide.

Who knows who was the first to use tags in web design but these days a lot of websites are decorated with tags. Not only these are price tags but different kinds of tags which help webmasters mark important information including but not limited to website names, slogans, contacts, etc.

This article is a round up of 18 websites using tags. If you compare these websites you’ll notice they have a few features in common. For instance most websites are online portfolios which come with rich textures. We believe web designers who add tags to their websites hope the tags will grab visitors’ attention as well as price tags do. Still, you are to decide if tags are really that helpful when it comes to attracting visitors.
