The No-Nonsense Guide to HTML5 Fallbacks So here we're collecting all the shims, fallbacks, and polyfills in order to implant HTML5 functionality in browsers that don't natively support them. The general idea is that: We, as developers, should be able to develop with the HTML5 APIs, and scripts can create the methods and objects that should exist. Developing in this future-proof way means as users upgrade, your code doesn't have to change but users will move to the better, native experience cleanly. Looking to conditionally load these scripts (client-side), based on feature detects? See Modernizr. Looking for a guide to write your own polyfills? Looking for an alphabetical guide on HTML5, CSS3, etc. features, and how to use them? Looking for a polyfill combinator? svgweb by Brad Neuberg & others Fallback via FlashSnap.SVG from scratch by the author of Raphaël (Dmitry Baranovskiy) Abstracted API.

At the same time, we need to do our best to avoid leaving users with older browsers behind. Polyfills - a term coined by Remy Sharp to describe JavaScript shims that replicate the standard API found in native features of new browsers for those without such features - are a way of helping us achieve this. In today's post, I'm going to recount my experience of creating a cross-browser polyfill along with the lessons learned along the way.

cssFx by imsky cssFx cssFx adds vendor-specific prefixes to your stylesheets. How it works When the document has finished loading, internal (<style>) and external (<link>) stylesheets are processed, fetching any @import stylesheets as well. It's recommended to bundle stylesheets into one file to minimize request overhead. HTML5 Please - Use the new and shiny responsibly Making your app real-time is a huge boost and WebSockets give you the ability to add bi-directional communication over a persistent connection to your application to increase interactivity and user engagement. web-socket-js is a natural polyfill for the JavaScript WebSocket API transferring data through Flash Sockets when WebSockets aren't available. To use native WebSockets in versions of Firefox before 11, the prefixed MozWebSocket should be used. The protocol backing the Web Socket API has become an IETF standard, but Safari did not implement that version until Safari 6. To support Safari 5, the WebSocket server needs to support both -76 and the RFC6455 versions, or you can use Flash or Java sockets (if available). The -76 version has a possible security problem for users behind buggy transparent proxies.

ddr-ecma5 - Brings ECMAScript5 features to any browser ddr-ecma5 is a JavaScript library which brings the ECMAScript 5 extensions to any browser.

User Agent Man — A Blog about Client Side Web Technology I am Zoltan "Du Lac" Hawryluk (and yes, Zoltan is my real name). I am web developer born and raised in Toronto, Canada. I research new web technologies, especially the ones with the sexy overused acronyms, like HTML5 and CSS3. I am also the creator of several JavaScript libraries (cssSandpaper, html5Widgets, visibleIf), a few online tools (IE Transform Translator, CSS3 Matrix Construction Set) and other random things (CSS3 Font Converter). When I discover stuff, I post my findings here — partly because I want to share with the community, and partly because I forget things if I don't write them down. More about me.
