Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8541)


Content-centric and device-agnostic design are crucial parts of modern web design. They are required to cater for the rapidly growing variety of different web-enabled devices and screen resolutions. We review satire site as a drastic example for realizing these aspects. Additional enhancements are proposed that pave the path to up-to-date minimalistic web design. A simple example application is described to illustrate the proposed approach.
