Frameworks for rapid prototyping with HTML, CSS and JavaScript

Hi all,

I've been researching a bit on what is the best for rapid prototyping using HTML, CSS, JavaScript.

Until now I was using Balsamiq Mockups, Axure and tools like that but recently I've realized that for some purposes could be appropriate to use "handmade" HTML with style and interactions and refine it and add interactions throught an iterative process.

But I think for rapid prototyping a framework is needed and have to exists already some goods alternatives that make the life easier to designers/developers.

What would you recommend in those cases?

Content sharing and Share buttons - good and bad examples?

Hi All,

I am looking for good and bad examples of how sites encourage users to share content whether that be by email or share buttons or other means.  I notice some sites are including a lot of buttons which I think negatively impacts the user experience for the sake of SEO.  Do you know of any bad examples or really good examples?  

Apologies if this has been discussed already but I couldnt find anything using the Search.
