Link: Browser Market Pollution: IE[x] is the new IE6

Worrisome points here. The release cycle IE is now projecting is decent, new browsers more often. But what’s far more important than shipping frequency, is the browser half-life; soon there will be way too many configurations of IE for anyone in the web production industry to stay sane. IE10 comes out soon and IE6, IE7 and especially IE8 aren’t going anywhere. So each new IE browser, even if it were clean of bugs, still does nothing to make IE better. No one is using them. Not to mention the rendering mode in each IE browser is different than the last – bringing in bugs almost as random or weird than the ones it reportedly fixes.

    Cyclomatic Complexity: Logic in CSS – CSS Wizardry – CSS, OOCSS, front-end architecture, performance and more, by Harry Roberts

    I recently hit upon a way of thinking that made me realise that CSS does include logic, and the fact that it’s rarely viewed as such is probably also why we end up with such poor CSS at all.I found myself explaining compound selectors to a client as being made up of the subject—the thing […]
