There is stuff which really make my heart beat faster. Yes, I’m emotional about web technologies.

Why: I always thought of using vector tools in Photoshop is not natural. And doing websites in Illustrator doesn’t feel natural to me as well.

The Firefox Logo was made with it and there is a great introductory praise over at smashingmagazine.
