When developing sites I am often asked to perform tasks that from the first look seem very simple. But when I dig into it I soon find out that it’s turning out to be one of those things that make you go “hm…”
100 CSS compatibility or degrade correctly
cssglobe November 12, 2008 comments (11)
I was talking with a front-end developer friend recently and was arguing that I would only use CSS3 rounded corners and shadows in the near future. No more pixel perfect for IE if it degrades correctly. My friend was not far from being outraged, for him, the user experience is King, and all users should have access to the same experience

I added 2 new features to this site, something that should be added a long time ago.
