Good day, Eric. Thanks for the interesting article. Honestly, have not seen yet such people who are interested to look at your site with a wireframe. However, there are ideas how to use some other things. I translated your article into Russian language and posted on your blog. I hope you don't mind (active links I put down).

Really cool stuff! I took your example code and just prepended [data-wf-on] to the CSS selectors and then added those styles to my userContent.css in Firefox. Then I can just add or remove the [data-wf-on] attribute on the body via the inspector to toggle showing the wireframes.

I almost called it data-wtf instead
I certainly read it as data-wtf initially.

You can use a optimized background value for gradients: background: linear-gradient(to top right, transparent calc(50% - 1px), var(--wire) 0, var(--wire) calc(50% + 1px), transparent 0 ), /* ... */

Hi Eric, thank you very much for sharing this! I regularly use a – not as advanced ;) – version of such boxes for early responsive content wireframes / HTML prototypes that I also share with clients. Outlining a basic structure this way is really helpful, especially in early stages of a project. You get an idea of the content hierarchies and the "dimensions" of your site – also on small devices – and can then gradually improve the fidelity of your prototype.

I think the Chrome behavior with the blurry lines is from their renderer switching strategies once the “textures” get big enough. Chrome has a lot of special-casing for performance reasons, which can do interesting things on certain GPUs.

Brilliant as usual Eric, thank you for sharing! Mind if I use this idea a bit, with a few personalised tweaks of course? Cheers, Jon PS. Does Jenny know you're using her number? ;-)
