If you’re a web designer, web developer or just someone that keeps up with the latest "Web 2.0" technologies, you know that a lot of progress is being made by ALL the major browsers to become "standards compliant". You also know that the Web Standards Project has created a number of "Acid" tests that help all the browser developers ensure that their browser works as "expected". If you’re an experienced web designer or developer, you probably use several different browsers (IE, Firefox, Opera, Camino, Safari, etc.) to test your sites against everyday.
What you may not be aware of is some of the very "advanced" features Safari (WebKit actually) has in the works which may well change the way we think about developing Web 2.0 applications.
- Web Fonts
- Client-Side Database Storage
- CSS3 Transforms
- CSS3 Animation
- SVG Support
- CSS Gradients
- CSS Box Shadow
- And Many, Many More…
And why you ask, is WebKit (and Safari) pushing these advanced features out the door so quickly?
Safari on iPhone!
Starts you thinking, doesn’t it!
