Gradient for OS X - The Missing Link between Web Designers and Colors
December 6, 2011 in Web Design
[prMac.com] Voghera, Italy - Jumpzero is proud to announce Gradient 1.0 for Mac OS X their time-saving tool for web designers. Gradient streamlines the creation of CSS3 gradients by taking care of writing the vendor prefixes needed to build a gradient that's compatible with all modern browsers (and older ones too).
You only need to pick the colors you're after from your mockups (or fill the fields in the input pane) and tweak the gradient properties, selecting linear or radial type and deciding the direction or the center position. The rest is taken care of by the application and what's left is copying the resulting code and pasting it in your text editor of choice.
With support for hot keys and a huge array of customization possibilities, Gradient is the fastest and simplest Mac OS X application you will ever need to create CSS3 gradients.
"You won't find a web designer alive who doesn't cringe at the process of creating CSS3 gradients for the various modern browsers and Internet Explorer. It's incredibly tedious, but, thanks to Gradient, this task now takes seconds!" Jeffrey Way, NetTuts
"Writing out gradients by hand with all the appropriate vendor prefixes is tedious, error prone, and a waste of time. For simple two color gradients (the majority of use cases) Gradient App is the perfect tool." Chris Coyier, CSS-tricks
