The Materials Research Society website was an interesting site for me. On top of the custom rotating slide show and tabs JavaScripts that I wrote I tried using LESS for the first time. LESS is a CSS processor that allows for a faster writing on CSS by allowing nesting and reusing classes. While I liked LESS it took some time to get used to the ins and outs of selector nesting. Due to this fact the CSS files are a little bloated and over specific.

I've since made the switch to using SASS, another CSS processor, that in my opinion is a little more robust than LESS. I've also gotten better at nesting selectors to produce much smaller and easier to maintain files.
