Chapter 3. BROWSER ADOPTION OF CSS >  Browser Differences

Browser Differences

As a Web author, it is worth your while to get to know the major differences and the quirks that determine how well CSS is adopted within a particular browser. An understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of a given browser will help you to choose which CSS elements will be most effective in your Web pages.

Internet Explorer 3.x

Internet Explorer 3.x was the first major browser to implement CSS, although only in a rudimentary fashion. It did not implement many CSS properties, and those that were implemented were rarely implemented fully. Very few people use Internet Explorer 3.x today, so it is probably not worthwhile to try and design pages that would look good in it. This is just as well, since designing Web pages that use CSS for Internet Explorer 3.x is pretty much an exercise in frustration, anyway. In short, don't plan on designing a CSS-oriented Web site that has to be "safe" for whatever Internet Explorer 3.x users are still out there.
