Now that IE8 is out the time has come to update the support chart. So now I have added IE8, Opera 9.5, and Safari 3.x to the chart.

So what has changed?

  • IE8 only supports the *:first-child + html and * + html hacks in IE7 compatibility mode.
  • IE8 now supports media types specified with the @import rule. (It's an excellent way to hide stylesheets from IE5-7/Win.)
  • Opera 9.5+ now supports the CSS3 :root selector. So that selector no longer a way to hide rules from Opera.
  • Safari 3+ supports CSS3 Media Queries. It's the second engine to support it. Opera has since version 7.

Man, nice post. I was wondering when you would update this. Opera is as cutting edge as it gets, and Safari isn't far behind. Are you going to include FF 3.1 beta?

No, I'm not going to include a version that's still under development.

"No, I'm not going to include a version that's still under development."

Isn't this half the reason beta versions exist? So web developers can ensure their sites work in the latest and greatest browsers once released?
