"Mozilla splash page" assessment

Hello, I’m currently doing the “Mozilla Splash page” assessment. I can get everything to work except for the part with the responsive images. Here’s a snippet of my HTML doc:

>     <a href="https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/">  
>           <img srcset="images/dino120.png 120w,
>                        images/dino400.png 400w"
>                sizes="(max-width: 480px) 120px,
>                       (min-width: 481px) 400px"
>                src="images/dino400.png" alt="a red dinosaur head">
>         </a>

Is there anything wrong with my code? I can’t see any differences whenever I resize my browser.

I’ve not looked at this stuff for a while, but your code looks pretty reasonable.

Try comparing your code to the finished version here:


One reason that might be causing a problem is that if you are using a very hi res screen, the browser might load up the larger image even at the narrow width, so that it start looks sharp, and not fuzzy.

Thank you!
In my laptop, everytime I get the 400px picture.


I am doing a Mozilla splash page assignment and it seems like scrset/sizes works well in Firefox browser: 120px icons are downloaded when the screen width is 480px or lower, and 400px icons otherwise.

But in Google Chrome dev tools it keeps downloading 400px icons no matter how small the screen width is. At least that is what I see on a Network tab.
I tried to check finished assignment on MDN Github and there is the same issue.
Is this about Google Chrome not supporting this attributes or something else?

Thank you!

P.S. Red panda image changes work just fine

P.S.S. Nevermind, I just checked StackOverflow. It seems like a Chrome feature. It recognizes that my resolution is higher than I want it to think. Funny moment, its own tool can’t fool the browser =) Even after clearing and disabling cache it keeps getting 400px images.
Wrapping in the <picture> element still works, though

Hi @chrismills ,

Below is the body of the html page for the assessment: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Learn/HTML/Multimedia_and_embedding/Mozilla_splash_page
I would appreciate if you can go through the file and let me know if it is correct.
