Cascading style sheet CSS3 is the up and coming version of CSS that adds interesting properties that have not been available in the past
The standard for CSS3 is quite a ways out in terms of an official standard from the W3C, the standards setting organization for the web
CSS3 offers interesting effects such as drop shadows, gradients, rounded corners, column layouts, multiple backgrounds, transitions, RGBA or HSBA colors, to name a few
Some of these properties are being used in our Tranquil Travel website design
We can take a look at some of these properties and how they behave in both Live View and also in the actual browsers
CSS3 is not fully supported in all browsers so you must always test in your target browsers to be sure that your page will degrade gracefully, but that should be done for whatever you use on your pages
Some of these properties degrade gracefully in older browsers so they can be used immediately
Other CSS3 properties need what is known as proprietary prefixes in order to work in certain browsers
Examples of proprietary prefixes are -webkit- or -moz- or -o- or -ms-
Some CSS3 properties require the proprietary code for now in order to work in that specific browser, but once CSS3 is better supported and more of a standard, you will not need to add the proprietary code
In this course I am focusing on features of CSS3 that we can use today on our sites
CSS3 is a very exciting new version of CSS that will allow us to add new features to our websites that will be built into the browser, and some of these properties can be used right now on web pages
