I am happy to announce that the new version of AcidJs.Tiles is out with improved and even more realistic looks and animations. It also includes a minor bug fix, related to the setting of the “title” property of the control.
The tiles can be used as placeholder of virtually anything – from simple text, to sophisticated markup and forms.
The new version is backwards compatible, so upgrading from version 1.0 is easy and out of the box and would not cause any trouble.
And last, but not least, click the image below to check a cool real-life demo of AcidJs.Tiles:

Not really much of a practical value, I must admit, but showcasing the immense power of CSS3 which can be used today. Have fun and enjoy the weekend!
Freelance websites are cheap employers’ favorite places to hire cheap developers to build their big and shiny dreams at discount prices and low quality, and make these sites owners rich for making both sides happy and content.
IMDB Fetcher is an experimental, free and easy to use REST API for getting movie, series and artist data from IMDB and returning it as serialized JSON objects ready to use on web applications or websites.
REST API Methods:
get/title: The method retrieves data (release date, running time, embeddable poster, writers, directors, cast, synopsis, country) for the requested title.
get/search: Search IMDB for titles, actors, companies, writers, directors, etc.
get/name: The method returns info about the person, who has been searched for – name, date of birth, short bio, productions, photo, etc.
img/: Images on IMDB cannot be hot-linked. This method circumvents the limitation.
Just before the weekend, here’s a pure CSS3 implementation of a rating star system with support for selection and hover, made-up by radio buttons, rtl, generated content, minimal markup and sibling selectors.
