Any designer and developer should have in their bookmarks a list of resources for user interface elements and components. For example i use to collect the most interesting and useful snippets code, jQuery plugins, Ui resources and tutorials in my pinterest boards. I keep them updated almost daily. If you are designer or a developer, i recommend to have a look to my pinterest account, there might be boards interesting for you.
My purpose in this blog post is that you absolutely need to have in your bookmarks the following links of web pages which deliver the best user interface elements and components.
