I made a google clone! I'd love your feedback!

Hey Treehouse!

I just finished the Web Development track, and I put all my knowledge to use by making a clone of the Google homepage on Codepen.

I tried to faithfully replicate the homepage as clearly as possible, but I"m certainly still learning!

Here's the link: http://codepen.io/rachaelanneallison/pen/YqvjrR?editors=1100

I'd love your feedback about how I could make my code more concise, clear, and easy to read.

Thank you!

Thanks for this feedback, Ryan!

The google homepage doesn't resize (since they have an app), so I didn't include that on purpose. But I'm working on another project that will include that.

Thanks for taking a look! :)

Wow nice, I'm not an expert I'm just starting but I will unite both footer classes in one

.rightfooter a:hover { text-decoration:underline; }

.leftfooter a:hover { text-decoration:underline; }

Maybe use the same class for both. Cheers

Looks practically identical - great job!

If you're looking for an extension, you could try making it work on mobile using media queries, using percentages instead of fixed pixel widths?
