How does Apple create their round window interact buttons? (Min, Max, Close)
The website does not even have to be crazy for the scan-a-web to be useful; this forum here uses the same forum design as many other forums such as Wattflyer;FPVLab;Computer Forums;...
Is it possible that this sort of mentality of "it already exists, why change it" applies to other aspects such as web designing? Everything is square based so why circles?
Not at all, HTML and CSS are evolving languages; Just another hurdle to creating such a program I'm afraid. More recent implementations of CSS include rounded properties, although the use of these newer effects is stifled by browser support. There are also more advanced methods of creating shapes in web design, such as SVG, but I don't know much about that.
I don't know how Apple creates their stuff, but I can bet they aren't using a web language.
I think the mentality "it already exists, why change it"
has a strong following in the web development arena, but at the same time I wouldn't blame that for the abundance of themes based on rectangles. I've tried themes based on diagonals, but they just weren't practical in terms of what I had to work with, and I had to give up on them.
