I am a web developer and am frustrated right now by the fact that IE8 is
lagging so far behind in its support for CSS3 design features. On Safari
(Webkit), Firefox (Mozilla), Chrome and (to some extent) Opera I can use the
text-shadow, opacity, gradient, @font-face, and box-shadow features of CSS3.
This is a HUGE time-saver in page coding and also speeds up page-loads since
there are far fewer images to load. But when someone views the page in IE8 it
looks like garbage. I'm not willing to sacrifice the functionality of CSS3,
so for now I'm forced to put a notice on my sites telling people to download
Firefox to view them. I can't see any rational reason why you would not build
support for all of this into what is supposed to be the "best" browser for
Windows. Please, please, please don't wait for IE9 to implement these CSS3
features. Implement them in a maintenance upgrade as soon as humanly possible!
