CSS3 will have more built-in functions, i.e. rounded corners etc.

But unfortunately some browsers do not support it yet...cough cough useless IE :banghead:

Unfortunately no.

As any CSS 3 features you use will only show in supported browsers, therefore in unsupported browsers you will get undesirable effects. :(

Hopefully one day soon :)

Yes of course you can use css3 features. But as the others said, remember that browsers like IE don't support it.

So I would consider each project you do and think about the target audience. And secondly, you should consider if it's a bad thing someone using IE6 gets a "degraded" experience. Not always I think.

I mean, is it really so bad if someone gets to see a box with straight corners instead of rounded corners? That person wouldn't even know the box is supposed to have rounded corners. So you can use CSS3 features and give people using modern browsers an enhanced experience

We need to stop trying to make hacks for people with IE6. If they want more from the web, they should upgrade, not us break the web standards for just a outdated browser's sake.

It is the developer/programmer that has to adapt to the standards, not the users.

Yes. Problem is when you refuse to do it, there would some other dev promoting that he also develops for "backwards compatibility". :?
