Over the holidays, I was really busy working on a little mini-app for our New Years Resolution campaign, a “mad-libs” style new years resolution. We chose to make it not free-form, because we didn’t want people to get too… creative using our brand. There is one free-form text field and some cheeky fun pre-populated choices.
For GA, the look was extremely important and it was frustrating to work with the browser default select tags. They are really ugly and really difficult to control with CSS. They also look really different on every browser. Eeek.
