CSS Filters: Cross browser implementations

Category: CSS

CSS is a standard. A standard that has many versions. Browsers may or may not implement certain versions, or pieces of these standards, and this becomes the bane of our existence :)

If you want a quick way to answer questions like:

  • * html div: Will this work in the browsers I care about?
  • body>div: How about child selectors?
  • and many many more.

One table to rule them all?

I relied on that table for a long time, but as far as I know it’s been superceded by the more complete one here:
The table includes a filtering option to show only the browsers you care about.

You’ll find more via the CSS-Discuss wiki

Just be careful, when using CSS hacks, to consider forward compatibility with IE7:

Francois isn’t the first person I’ve seen recommend the Dithered table as being more complete, but I just think it’s ugly & difficult to use. Anyway, I just checked, and there are several browsers (Safari 2, a handful of Opera versions, and the IE7 Beta) on the Centricle table that aren’t covered on Dithered.

So, I guess the bottom line is: use both.
