Poll: ¿Is animation-direction a good idea?

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?
¿If so, should redundant combinations of normal with alternate or reverse also be allowed, such as normal alternate?
¿Or maybe we should ditch it altogether and replace it with animation-reverse, accepting values of none, all, even, odd?

This is just sad. :( Daniel Glazman, Christian Heilmann and others wrote about it, making very good points […]

I wanted to create a very simple/basic testsuite for CSS3 stuff so that you could hover on a e.g. CSS3 property and you got a nice browser support popup. While I didn’t achieve […]

What we still can’t do client-side

With the rise of all these APIs and the browser race to implement them, you’d think that currently we can do pretty much everything in JavaScript and even if we currently can’t due to browser support issues, we will once the specs are implemented. Unfortunately, that’s not true. There are still things we can’t do, […]

Vendor prefixes have failed, what’s next?

Edit: This was originally written to be posted in www-style, the mailing list for CSS development. I thought it might be a good idea to post it here as other people might be interested too. It wasn’t. Most people commenting didn’t really get the point of the article and thought I’m suggesting we should simply […]
