In the old days, buttons were usually styled up via image editing programs like Photoshop or Fireworks. Some buttons were simply designed without any cool effects you can add using image editing programs (this usually happened to input HTML tags and the only thing you could do was to change the background color, border color and text color).
Nowadays, creating cool buttons does not require image editing skills, and they can easily be achieved using CSS3 button generators. You can easily have the same result using only the new CSS3 technology adding a lot of pluses on your website pages (less images, less http requests, faster loading times, less bandwidth, etc).
If you do a little search on Google, you can surely see that a lot of CSS3 button generator are provided but not all of them do their job correctly (at least from my point of view). Thats why, today I’ll try to round up a list of CSS3 button generators worth bookmarking. If you know other than the list I provided, please do let a comment in the specific section.
As a plus, I will also add some already coded CSS3 button frameworks you can easily include in your project.
