50 Resources for Web Designers

This article from Smashing Magazine has an incredible list of time saving applications, blogs, web sites, etc. to increase web designers efficiency. From CodeBurner, testing. bookmarking, checking monitor resolution, browser compatibility, colors, project estimates, readability and conversion tools – our jobs as professional web designers and web developers just got a whole lot easier! Some are just fun, time sucks I must admit – maybe  I will download them to the iphone and actually play around with them a bit next time I am co-pilot on a trip. I’ll post further reviews…don’t mark my words though. Between updating corporate branding, logo designs,  web site designs, customer meetings, programming, internet marketing, WISE and AMA there is no time fro play right now. Thats okay though and hopefully some of these links from smashingmagazine will help us all!
