When you’re developing a site, there’s a bunch of neat HTML5 stuff you can use, but a lot of the time it’s not supported properly or at all in various browsers.
Enter stage left: Can I Use dot com.
Caniuse.com is an awesome compatibility reference for CSS and HTML5 features on the web. It lists current and previous versions of browsers that support various features and has a super-fast search to find the tech you’re looking for.
It’s a great way to determine whether you should use a particular feature for your target audience, and also makes it easier to work out whether you should use a shim to bring older browsers up to speed or use another method entirely to achieve your goals.
Even better, the source data is on GitHub, so you can fork it for your own nefarious purposes or contribute back in areas that might not be complete.
If you haven’t already, check out Can I Use before you start work on your next web project, you may be surprised by what you can do.
