Chapter 7. Flexing Your Layout Muscles > Changes on the Horizon

Changes on the Horizon

Throughout this book, we’ve focused on practical CSS3 techniques that can be used in your work right away as a progressive enhancement method. This final chapter, however, is going to cover many properties that have poor or even nonexistent browser support, and which are much more essential to the page, rather than being visual effects that older browsers can do without. However, I still think they’re important to learn, as they offer powerful new ways to build web pages that will cause a huge shift in our web design and development process. Plus, there are ways to use them in a more limited manner now for effects that degrade well in non-supporting browsers.

So think of this final chapter as primarily a look ahead at how we’ll be building sites a few years from now. By learning these new techniques now, you’ll be able to gradually introduce them into your sites in small ways, and when they’re finally ready for full-blown use, you’ll be at the front of the pack.
