Pixels of the Week – March 6, 2015
This content is 4 years old. Remember that the following content might be outdated.

Every week I post a lot of my daily readings about Web, UI and UX Design, mobile design, webdesign tools  and useful ressources, inspiration on twitter and other social networks.

This week’s selection: UX tricks and recommendations, click user testing, usability check points, a comparison of prototyping tools, “do you really need an app for that?” question answered, making forms mobile friendly, Google testing the “slow” label in search results,  Flexbox, SVG, stock photos that rocks, a slider and a mobile friendly touch friendly menu and some Friday WTF with the world’s most shareable website.

TL;DNR the one you should not miss
