Christian “Schepp” Schaefer shows how to use the new filter-properties for CSS3 and combine them with methods implemented by most modern browsers. This article was first published in German on December 19th 2011.
Some weeks ago Paul Irish published his article about TAFEE (Tiered, Adaptive Front-end Experiences) and shares Paul Boag’s booklet called “Where are my rounded corners?” which tries to describe why it is better to design for the future and modern browsers and not spending too much time trying to get the website’s design working in older browsers (namely Internet Explorer 7 and 8).
The booklet was originally published in Paul Boag’s blog. Paul describes why he did this this:
One of the biggest areas of confusion among our clients is progressive enhancement. They wonder why the beautiful design they signed off doesn’t look the same in older browsers. To overcome this problem we are making two changes. First, we are trying wherever possible to show them designs in the browser rather than as static images. Second, I have put together a short document outlining why progressive enhancement is ultimately better for their site.
As we have the same issues with customers that do not understand why they get different experiences of their websites in different browsers, we translated this beautiful booklet to German and want to share it with anyone who needs it under Creative Comments Licence.

Update 03.02.2012: Niels Steinmeier has a Danish version of this booklet. I don’t understand a word but it may help the one or the other.
This mothereffin shit is worth a blog-post. Even if it’s just a short one.
At this very moment I’m celebrating the fact that Internet Explorer 10 now supports text-shadows kinda excessively! Finally! Even Internet Explorer made it! Yayyyy!
For more details on this, please go and check out the
Internet Explorer 10 Guide for Developers. Microsoft developers explain the usage of
text-shadow here. But I guess it should be pretty clear how to use them as other browsers support them like forever.
There are also some other cool things in Internet Explorer 10 concerning CSS3 stuff like hyphenation and animations. This is so worth it, Microsoft. Thanks for finally keep track with other browser vendors.
Another thing that’s pretty cool is support for so many HTML5 features in Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 3.
