Gemination > Future-Proof Design

Future-Proof Design

An ongoing discussion in Web design is the idea of “future-proof” design. This means that whatever is done today will still work in the context of tomorrow’s more advanced technologies.

Of course, the entire approach taken for Gemination—and the approach of MOSe in general—relies on the fact that Internet Explorer has inferior support for what are standard, contemporary selectors within the CSS 2.1 specification. So what happens sometime in the murky future when Microsoft distributes a more modern browser—one that supports all of these features? Theoretically nothing, if all selectors and effects are supported equally—this hypothetical version 7 of Internet Explorer for Windows would simply render the page as Mozilla and other browsers currently view it, and the world is a wonderful place. Of course, the potential exists for this to cause a major clash, and trying to imagine the results is practically impossible.
