skeuomorphism: from what I read, it is the use of web design in the design of a web page that makes a design appear real, like the wood grain in a picture frame, or an aquarium made to look like real glass. I don’t understand designers harsh feelings about the topic. I guess they’re concerned about the changes to the Web and the way the Web is constantly changing. It seems that certain designs and styles are no longer necessary or needed to make a web page useful. If something is working, I don’t understand the point of doing away with it.
