Can we get rid of gradient prefixes?

I recently realized that unprefixed gradients finally propagated to stable Chrome, and after tweeting about it, I decided to do some research on which browsers support unprefixed gradients, and what percentage of users needs them. Currently, unprefixed gradients are supported in: Chrome 26+ Firefox 16+ Opera 12.10+ IE10+ Lets have a look at which prefixes […]

border-corner-shape is in danger, and you can help!

Remember my previous post about an app I made to preview border-corner-shape? It stirred a lot of discussion in the CSS WG, and David Baron posted this: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css4-background/#border-corner-shape appears to me to be an example of a feature that’s addressing a problem that we don’t have — or at least that we don’t have enough […]

Lots of improvements coming to dabblet

I posted about this in both the WebPlatform.org blog and Dabblet’s blog, but I thought it might be interesting to many readers of this blog as well: As many of you probably know, I’ve started working for W3C Developer Relations since this August.

Important -prefix-free update

Those of you that have been following and/or using my work, are surely familiar with -prefix-free. Its promise was to let you write DRY code, without all the messy prefixes, that would be standards-compliant in the future (which is why I’m always against adding proprietary features in it, regardless of their popularity).

Summary:
¿What’s the animation-direction property?
¿Is alternate reverse and reverse alternate (either would be allowed) a better value for animation-direction over alternate-reverse?

rgba.php v1.2: Improved URL syntax, now at Github

I wrote the first version of rgba.php as a complement to an article on RGBA that I posted on Februrary 2009. Many people seemed to like the idea and started using it. With their valuable input, I made many changes and released v.1.1 (1.1.1 shortly after I posted the article due to another little fix) […]
