“CSS3 is great, but I can’t use it on my sites because it’s not supported by IE.”

We may have heard this or been caught saying it in the past, but there are ways to enrich our user experiences today using CSS3 effects and animations - even on sites which still have high IE traffic. In this quick and dirty on CSS3 we’ll take a look at how to wield the power of CSS3 today, discuss appropriate implementation of things like effects and animations, and address the issues of browser compatibility (otherwise known as the “Plague of Redmond"). We’ll wrap it all up by diving into custom CSS3 animations to make your users in webkit browsers shout for joy.
