Ben Bodien 01 December 2009 Welcome back, 24Ways team! I love the idea of using transparency in borders to blend them in a bit to a textured or photographic background. Tiny touches like that really lift an interface. Varying opacity on hover is also a nice effect, but I’ve noticed a few sites doing this on elements that aren’t actually link targets, which I find distracting. Bring on the rest of the month!
