With Internet Explorer 9 Public Beta just released we are a step closer to being able to use more functionality from HTML5 and CSS3. More and more developers and designers are taking the steps and creating their sites with HTML5 and CSS3 leaving the option to the user to switch to the most modern browser to fully experience the website.
It goes without saying this does not go at the cost of content and usability but more at the cost of design. Users with browsers like Chrome will experience more eye candy then users of Internet Explorer 8. Now that Internet Explorer has finally caught up with the other browsers which will push all browsers makers to keep their browsers on top of the game, we can finally really seriously start using HTML5 and CSS3.
Now there still is the issue of which browsers supports which functionality exactly. This is where free templates and frameworks come in handy. The developers of these templates and frameworks have done the dirty job to make yours easier. Take a look at this selection of templates and frameworks to help you get started with your HTML5 and CSS3 website.
Like Microsoft now puts it, start “Unlocking the beauty of the Web”.
Boilerplate is not a framework, nor does it prescribe any philosophy of development, it’s just got some tricks to get your project off the ground quickly and right-footed.
