A Project-based Guide to the Latest in CSS
This article is an excerpt from Chapter 1 of the book Stunning CSS3: A Project-based Guide to the Latest in CSS, but is kept continually updated. It was last updated in October 2010.
In each chapter of this book, we’ll go over appropriate scripts for the technique we’re covering, but here are a few popular scripts that aren’t “uni-taskers”—they each can handle a variety of CSS3 emulation tasks:
- IE7, by Dean Edwards
- Makes CSS3 pseudo-classes and attribute selectors work in IE 6 through 8. Also makes the CSS3 properties box-sizing and opacity work, along with a bunch of CSS 2.1 properties and selectors that old versions of IE don’t support.
- Selectivizr, by Keith Clark
- cssSandpaper, by Zoltan Hawryluk
- Makes 2D transforms, box-shadow, gradients, opacity, RGBA, and HSLA work in IE and other non-supporting browsers.
- PIE, by Jason Johnston
- Makes border-radius, box-shadow, multiple backgrounds, background-origin, background-clip, and linear gradients work in IE 6 through 8. It also enables limited support for border-image and RGBA.
