Maybe this could be a thread for neat/lame/tacky web tricks that are in the now. Here's one, that uses css-queries to change the layout depending on the display size.

Some example sites (try squishing them up, to see the different break points and what happens):
http://24ways.org/
http://hicksdesign.co.uk/
http://colly.com/ (I really like this one)

The mechanics are actually quite simple, check out the css for that last one (media queries are at the bottom):

For a quick tutorial:

Obviously, that last site also takes advantage of it, a little less elegantly, but quite creative.

I've been meaning to switch from Godaddy for a while now. I appreciate that they helped stop other companies gouging customers with their registration prices, but lately they've just been doing bad business. I spose I could switch my domains to iWeb, but I'm not sure how long I'll stay with them.

That CSS queries thing is kinda neat, but it seems like the function has very little use aside from tweaking a page based on browser width, so it probably could have been done differently... and maybe not called "queries"...

Also it's very rare that a client will allow you to simply hide their links and content so that the page will fit right, like many of the examples do.

AngularJS might be something worth playing around with.
