Click-Action Buttons

Many in the world of web application design desire to make their web-based software look and feel more like a desktop application. I’m a fan of making the web experience as rich as possible, and I recently learned how to add something more to my designs: click-action buttons.

Yes, it’s true. I love buttons. To me, the button is quite possibly the most important element in an interface. They should be designed and implemented with a lot of thought since they are the invokers of action and the committers of data.

Here I’ll demonstrate how to make buttons that press in when clicked, and it’s all going to happen without any JavaScript or magic.
