IE has officially forced me to spend 50% more time to complete a project. Bugs, workarounds, special IE filters, all contributed to the time. The last 3 or 4 projects, I tracked my hours spent on IE. Maybe Microsoft secretly hates other developers.
I have a new example demonstrating a few HTML 5 features like:
- vertical text
Of course, IE is not yet a “modern” browser so it needs to use it’s little “filter” hack. Leave it to IE to have a bug in it’s own hack. Gradients and Shadows cannot be shown at the same time. I haven’t really found a workaround yet.
