I’ve been using CSS3PIE for a lot of our projects recently, which makes Internet Explorer 6 – 9 behave under some of our favorite css3 techniques. Some of the highlighted features of CSS3PIE are:
- rbga() support
I’ve found this little plugin to work quite well, but it can get a little laggy when used on too many elements (which is understandable). The great news is that a few days ago, CSS3PIE 1.0 was officially released from a long beta process. To take a look at it’s effectiveness, browse over to http://www.wineglassmarathon.com/
and compare IE8 with Chrome or Firefox. It’s not 100%, but CSS3PIE has helped us bridge the gap to reduce the need for background images and allow our code to consistently be written in a more forward-thinking way.
Thank you Jason Johnston for your work on this project! It has proven valuable on more than one occasion in the past year and we’ll continue to utilize this great little shiv in future projects.
