The New Era of CSS: The why’s and why nots.
Why do we need a better CSS?
Not only is it essential for developers to have the upper hand in new techonology for programming but for the web designers too. CSS is rising and becoming more common. Some issues with this new revolution still arise, but it will definitely be an effective change in technology shared among the programmers, the designers and most importantly the user! There is the ability to have a lot more flexibility with alternative syntaxes, which benefits the programmer and design techniques that let the designers use a more wide variety of fonts (this is only the least of it). Some of these tweaks in the system will cut time in half in the developing of a website.
Of course in this day and age we are looking for the most simple solution in creating for the web, but great solutions take time to produce. Many believe the evolution of CSS will further grow and expand for our benefit and this will result in excellent success.
Then, Why isn’t the new CSS being released right now?
Let’s stop and smell the keyboard people! Out of all the browsers out there, not every one of them can grant our wishes. Unfortunately, 2 companies in particular, made errors in CSS1 support: Explorer 3 and Navigator 4.
Since IE5 came out there was a positive outlook on their development of CSS but sadly it wasn’t much different than their previous version. Luckily a company called Opera Software created a new version of IE5 and displayed great implementation of CSS1, but their support doesn’t quite meet CSS2 standards.
While we push for this new technology, we will also have to put our hopes on hold until these companies can catch up with the complete application of CSS1. Although, with the future releases of the 2 browsers, the CSS future seems bright and promising! This upcoming project will encourage designers to use CSS more and more with it’s large extent of flexibility.
