Chapter 1. The Birth of CSS > Re-emergence of the Browser Wars?

1.3. Re-emergence of the Browser Wars?

One can justifiably ask about the relevancy of a “browser war” now that the major battles seem to have been handily won by Internet Explorer, which currently commands somewhere in the region of 90% of all browsers used. For many Web authors, it's no longer a matter of ensuring a Web site is compatible with all of the major browsers, but instead making sure that it is workable when used by the most recent versions of Internet Explorer. Knowing how to tailor pages to work best with this browser is knowledge most Web authors want to know.

Despite Internet Explorer's preponderance on the browser scene, it would be foolish to dismiss the existence of other browsers out there. In fact, it may be fair to say that the browser wars have simply entered a new phase, and CSS has become one of the battlegrounds as browser manufacturers add their own extensions to it. On the good side, it seems as though browser manufacturers have been converted to the potential of implementing as many of the officially sanctioned CSS properties as possible in order to win mind share amongst Web authors.
