why did css3 kill the web?

11 posts in this topic

see, when css 2/2.1 came out, ALL browsers were forced to either obey the standard or get lost

and it was beautiful era

but now, with css 3 all I see are prefixes for different thigs

Opera has -o

Firefox has -moz

Webkit crap has -webkit

and for what ?

why ?

do they render things differently ?

maybe I'm stupid but shouldn't a common standard worth for ALL ?

who and why was behind this ?

The vendor prefixes are designed to allow for backwards compatibility with older browsers. They are meant to be temporary. But I think that as long as these concessions are made to older browsers, the longer they will stay around (hello IE6-7) making developers think they need to keep that compatibility there.

that doesn't make sense

when css3 was introduced, you have declared how something should behave and what "code" to use

I do understand that sometime due to next version rush browsers partially implement something

but prefixes won't help in that matter

1 unified rule/code for something, either it will work, or it won't ...

I'm so p***ed because all engines have their own set of code different from each other in some areas

instead they should all share 1 unified

I know what you are saying. I don't know why it is so different either across different browsers either.

It's a pain in the a**, but thankfully there are some plugins that take care of it for you - a small help in the meantime. There are also some properties I use often like border-radius and animation which require -webkit and -moz to work in in Chrome/Safari/FF at all, which is annoying, because that defeats the purpose of the legacy browser thing.

Prefix Free Looks pretty good, will probably give this a shot at some point.

Think of it like this. It only effects you if your a web designer, who makes things appealing for viewers like kids, and retarded rich investors. That is it. CSS is stupid. You have one file, with the information and another file ( or process within a file ( like C within Java ) ), so the **** spies could cherry pick information.

If you mean like Ebay. You can't even browse ebay correctly without having java on. Why do you need java so badly ebay? Why do you need C for the internet so bad??? Just secure my transaction and do not spy on me, that is all I am asking.

To make things worst, this is all for the handheld users. So if something not good enough is on the web a person could complain, they could remove the design, and make a new one, while keeping the information intact.

My advice for non-slave driver web developers is not to use CSS, unless it has security features. I also understand the good things about it, but I wouldn't mind dealing with having CSS ( Java etc ) inside the webpage at all. I see tons of people using it all the time.
