Cross-Browser CSS3Cross-Browser CSS3: Solutions and Considerations, by Louis Lazaris, is a compact and practical reference for dealing with browser inconsistencies in CSS3-based designs. When designing and developing CSS3-based websites, it's common place to run into cross-browser challenges, especially when dealing with markets and niches whose audiences are still using older versions of Internet Explorer. In this eBook, Louis Lazaris discusses the factors that need to be considered before attempting to use, or mimic, a CSS3 feature in all non-supporting browsers. This eBook provides readers with long-term principles that should guide their development, and provides numerous sources (including CSS3-based JavaScript libraries and plugins) to help developers make informed decisions on what's available. All the information in the eBook is presented in a balanced manner, with careful consideration for both benefits and drawbacks to each method, to ensure that your projects are as fast-loading and maintainable as possible without sacrificing your brand. The author of Cross-Browser CSS3, Louis Lazaris, is a writer, freelance web developer, and 10-year veteran in the web design niche. He blogs about front-end development on his site, Impressive Webs, and writes regularly for a number of popular web design blogs. He is also co-author of HTML5 and CSS3 for the Real World, published by SitePoint. The ebook is split into four parts:
  • Performance and Maintenance, including discussions of speed and techniques to consider.
  • Universal Methods, including coverage of Polyfilling, the Modernizr Detection Library, CSS3 PIE, and Selectivizr.
  • CSS3 Features, including box sizing, border radius, shadows, mutliple columns, opacity, and more.
  • Resources, including libraries, browser support charts, vendor prefix helpers, and more.
Cross-Browser CSS3 is offered exclusively by Webdesigner Depot for $17, but for a limited time you can get it via MightyDeals for only $9!
