But this gradual progress makes it really difficult for developers, coz now you have to hack your code to run X if it's IE6, Y if it's IE7, Z if it's IE8, etc.
I guess I knew that this was the case, it's just other than CSS I'd never seen it in action before. It still is surprising though, and of course frustrating. The question is, is it more frustrating for the people who code for a living, or the people like me who just occasionally need to do a bit of coding?
