Opera Software This is actually pretty big news - both exciting and tragic at the same time. Opera has revealed Opera Ice, its next mobile browser, to PocketLint. This new browser represent a big shift in both user interface as well as rendering engine, since it has a new, unique interface, as well as a new rendering engine... New to Opera, that is, as it's a WebKit-browser.

I been using the polyfill, CSS3PIE for rounded corners and backgrouns (rather sparingly because the the performance problems).

While they emulate IE behaviors they are much more maintainable because they rely on the standard syntax.

To be honest I just let IE fail gracefully. All the browsers that matter support rounded corners and I've made my personal bias against IE pretty clear in the past. So if people want the full experience then they'd just have to use any GUI browser that isn't IE (gecko, presto, webkit - people can take their pick) as I really can't be bothered to work around Microsoft's short comings any longer; I've already been there, done that, made a career from it, moved on and now I'm happier for it. :p

Plus performance and bandwidth footprints are number one priorities for my current web project - so if that means severing the head of IE, then so be it.

Except isn't really true of the newer browsers they have produced.

Sorry understanding caching and how it can help you is vital.

I find it hard to understand that you call yourself an expert and are unwilling to work around limitations. I personally think it is sloppy considering there are plenty of decent techniques that preserve as much performance as possible while still catering to those users.

I suppose it depends on your budget and you willingness.
