Who needs 4 round corners when you can have 1 or 2 that fade into oblivion?
There are a few reasons why this is not only kinda cool, but also a good idea for optimizing your site or blog:
1. It just looks cool.
2. It effectively separates content and keeps load times down because the background only loads once and doesn’t repeat.
3. It gives you freedom in your layout. Having a border that fades into your background enables you to leave the height and/or width of the column up to the content. For example, if you have a fading corner on the each section of the sidebar in your blog, you can add as many links as you want into that section and your CSS only loads one background image.
Putting your applications folder in your dock enables you to get rid of icons in your dock that you rarely use, and still have 1-click access to all of your installed applications. This not only keeps your dock clutter-free, it makes it easier to navigate to your applications folder after you install an application. (For example, a recent freeware install.)
