If you’re reading this, then I can safely assume that you’ve at least heard of CSS3 . The latest version of CSS includes properties that allow you to style your HTML elements with rounded corners, drop shadows , and even color gradients . However, these techniques just scratch the surface of what CSS3 can really do.
Ever since the announcement of in 2005, the development of the level 3 of Cascading Style Sheet or better known as CSS3 has been closely watched and monitored by many designers and developers. All of us excited to get our hands on the new features of CSS3 – the text shadows, borders with images, opacity, multiple backgrounds, etc, just to name a few. As of today, not all selectors of CSS3 are fully supported yet. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun testing new CSS3 stuff. This post is dedicated to all designers and developers who are already familiar with CSS 2.1 and want to get your hands dirty on CSS3.0.
Although CSS isn’t that difficult, useful CSS techniques are not easy to find. Sometimes finding a cross-browser solution might take time, but you don’t have to reinvent the wheel every single time. Other designers may have had the same problem in the past and thus the main goal of this round-up is to share with you a goldmine of new techniques which you will hopefully find very useful and valuable.

Just last week we released an extensive printable HTML 5 Cheat Sheet that lists all currently supported HTML 5 tags, their descriptions, their attributes and their support in HTML 4. In comments to this post we received many requests for a similar CSS 3 cheat sheet that would present the main features of CSS 3 in a handy, printable reference card. So we asked our friend Chris Hanscom from Veign.com (who created the HTML 5 cheat sheet) to create a quick reference card for CSS 3.
The latest revolutionary technology in web-designing, CSS3 is at the disposal of a web-designer to improve the working-flow and create exciting web pages.

When implementing CSS3 techniques, take into account that only the most up-to-date browsers can support them. However, CSS3 is worth trying as the new features and effects will help to create stunning web pages.
