ie9Whilst working on some new articles for the website I’ve been really impressed by what people are creating using CSS3.

It’s a really exciting time. Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 has just been released and it supports plenty of CSS3 properties (full list of Internet Explorer CSS3 properties). But of course, as with all web development, it’s never that easy. Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 isn’t compatible with windows XP.

Users on XP – which will account for around 40 to 45% of your website traffic  – will be unable to upgrade to Microsoft Internet Explorer 9. It’s really got us thinking what’s the best way of arranging our stylesheets.

Anyway, here’s a couple of nice examples of CSS3 for you to enjoy either in Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer 9 running Windows 7 or Vista:

Let me know if you’ve seen nice examples of CSS3 or Windows 7, really cheap!

    IE is the 900 pound gorilla that everyone ignores as being an issue to everything else. I for one refuse to cater to IE. If my site is not viewable to IE users they will be instructed to download an more user friendly browser like Netscape 4.0; yes I’m being ridiculous. But if Microsoft doesn’t want to play nice with the rest of the web world, maybe they need to be dealt with in a more direct manner. Further, if one caters to IE then one should not complain about the codependent relationship they have with IE. Besides, other browsers are more robust in their features and people ought to be encouraged to use them.
