Last month, the newest version of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser, IE9, hit the streets. Market share for IE9 is already growing rapidly at the expense of older versions of IE, including the much-maligned IE6.
While its CSS3 support still has some major omissions, IE9 has much better CSS3 support than previous versions of IE. This means that you, as a web designer or developer, can use some of the exciting and useful features of CSS3, safe in the knowledge that even IE users can now see the results! (Well, if they’re running IE9, of course.)
In this article we’ll explore some of these new CSS features that are, at last, supported by Internet Explorer, and show what these features can do for you as a web designer or coder.
Of course, most Internet Explorer users are still running earlier versions of IE. There’s still hope though, even for these older browsers! We’ll look at solutions and workarounds for older IE versions at the end of the article.
