More About Progressive Enhancement

Post by Don_U » 08/23/11, 8:36 am

The common train of thought is that you test not for the browser but for the existence of an element or feature then apply. What happens if this element does not perform as expected but tests 'true' according to
rules for progressive enhancement?

The idea is that you can be agnostic and not detect browser but feature is false. I have been working with CSS transform and there is a (huge) difference between how it handles Firefox on my MacBook Air as compared to
its characteristics on a Asus Eee Netbook running the same version of FF.

You can't ignore what is wrong in order to be right.
