It's just a damn shame we're not going to be able to use any until the year 2020 when Microsoft finally update Internet Explorer to support CSS 3. Then we'll have to wait another 30 years for them to fix all the bugs to make CSS 3 a viable option.
However, with that said, it is shaping up to be both an important release, and a worthwhile release. It seems to make zebra patterning so easy as well!
Yeah, I think all of the coders are waiting mostly for the multiple backgrounds. Even before they announced it, I was secretly wanting that feature. Even thinking about using multiple backgrounds makes me excited. Hopefully, MS will catch up with standards before it's released. Not likely, but one can hope, right?
I have a feeling the next IE will support CSS3 but IE7.5 or 8 or whatever stupid number they decide to use will be designed by the people that designed Office 2007, so, it's gonna look basically exactly like office 2007.
I personally cant wait for it with the multiple backgrounds. the main problem will still be cross-browser functionality, and with microsoft trailing behind still i doubt it will be majorly used anywhere.
Like Adam said above every browser will need to fetch out a new released for PHP6, i think they should be launched fully at a similar time :O
The only reason cross-compatibility ever came around comes down to the coder's fault, coder's made many faults so browsers were changed to compensate for the mistakes, if anything, it's the brower's fault for allowing mistakes (mainly firefox)
