Vendor Prefixes

Please add -o- prefixes to your CSS keyframe animations, as we at Opera have released a build containing prefixed support (and also HTML5 Drag and Drop and other goodies) so it’ll be in the wild soon.

Note too that CSS Gradients is soon going to be standardised and so will drop prefixes. This doesn’t mean you should take out your prefixed rules, but rather add non-prefixed rules eg linear-gradient, radial-gradient, repeating-linear-gradient, repeating-radial-gradient.

If you’re the owner of one of those very useful gradient generators that I use all the time, could you please add non-prefixed rules to the output, and retire any creaky old pre-standardised webkit-only output?


Buy "Calling For The Moon", my debut album of songs I wrote while living in Thailand, India, Turkey. (Only £2, on Bandcamp.)
