Chapter 1. The CSS3 Lowdown > Benefits of CSS3

Benefits of CSS3

I hope it’s now clear why progressive enhancement as a general development methodology is not only acceptable but good, but we haven’t really talked about the benefits of CSS3 in particular. The advantages of using CSS3 over alternative, older techniques extends far beyond just how cool CSS3 can make your pages look—though that’s certainly not a benefit to be ignored. As you’ll learn throughout this book, CSS3 allows you to create some really beautiful effects, adding a layer of polish and richness to your web designs.

But most of the visual effects that CSS3 allows you to create can be accomplished without CSS3, using alternative tools such as images, JavaScript, or Flash. So there needs to be some other reason beyond that “it looks cool” to use CSS3.
