We need to document what features are available to developers after you sunset support for a given browser.
I've done much of IE6 and IE7 here.
http://stateofhtml5.appspot.com/ (starting at slide 10)
We could also use FF3.0 notes.. like inline-block and the ­
Also related.. what are the features you have at your disposal if you're only targeting iOS/Android/WebOS ?
I think the website whencaniuse.com is perfect for getting this started.
Features available in IE7 that aren't available in IE6:
IE7 to IE8:
Firefox 3.5 to 3.6:
Features you can use in iOS and Android (is WebOS still around?):
Sorry if it's not the place, but the slides deforms completely on firefox 3.6.13.
Maybe displaying it in a periodic table like Google's APIs will be cool for this purpose. The way CSS3 is now split into modules will help one categorize the different aspects of CSS
Hi Paul, I actually built a tool like this a while ago. It takes a slightly different approach, you put in your browser stats and it tells you what percentage of your users support each CSS feature.
It supports bookmarkable urls so you can email your stats too. If you think its useful I can continue the process.
Very nice, I think you just need a little bit of exposure. Please keep working on the tool
When building this, what do you suggest, when should I browser version still be included? 1% global usage, 5%, 10%?
I remember this tool! Very cool.
I think the progression of browser support we sunset goes something like this:
There have been a good amount of areas where webkit aligned with IE in features. (outerHTML) So as FF2 and FF3 die, it actually opens up some features that are usable in IE+webkit.
h2 + p
ul.main > li
But...... yeah actually this app is kinda perfect.. I guess I'd want it to start with the global stats from gs.statcounter and then let me tweak things with sliders.
Yeah man I think this project is the answer..
Great, well I'll kick it off again so. I'll stick in gs.statcounter globals and get to work on adding more datapoints.
Do you have the code in a repository here on Github?
No not yet, ill put it up
Sweet, let me know when it's up here.
Hey, it's on github now
And I am watching it, good stuff Alan
Louis also did something similar here: http://www.impressivewebs.com/css3-browser-support/
Very nice, thanks for the link Paul. Working on something myself, unfortunately my current day job is not conducive to these kind of things and it is taking a longer than anticipated.
