I created this purely out of CSS, no images used, and without the help of Photoshop :) I believe that browsers can most definitely be used to design and develop in without the need for other applications.
Works amazingly in the latest versions of Chrome, Safari and Firefox.
Pick the code apart, slice it up—whatever! Do what you want with this :)

Nice man, I completely agree that PS is just a way to experiment and visualize ideas. BUT, if you can achieve this same thing in a browser then cut out the middle man.
Love this. The dimension of the window seems a little awkward though.
@Design Terrier Thanks :) Yeah I didn't think so much about the ratio of the window, now that I think about it, a golden ratio would've been more visually pleasing. The current window dimension looks a little short, and locked in. Thanks for the heads up, I'll take that into consideration for future UI :)
I agree, I hardly ever use Photoshop, I hand draw layouts and then move to code :)
@Ben Hubbard Fantastic! That's the best way to go. It's painful anyway trying to recreate something from PS.
Nowadays I find myself just making a .window div, setting height, width, background:red (just as a test), display:block etc, then start chucking gradients, box shadows etc on it.
I find this method works especially well in dabblet, since I want to see my results live :)
