I’ve become frustrated — perhaps jaded — with CSS and needed a good break from it. Maybe it’s burnout. Trying to keep things compatible cross-browser is just incredibly frustrating.
IE7 is really starting to piss me off. I hate the UI. Something so simple and basic and they had to go and screw it up. Then there’s the CSS system. They’re on beta 3 now and they still don’t have it right. It’s certainly better than IE6 in many ways.. but the ways that it breaks destroy a lot of my work at doing more advanced things like the drop-down menu. Layouts that work in every other browser are now breaking in IE7. I wish I could find one IE developer, grab them, and show just how broken their CSS is.
It’s frustrating. And every time I look at CSS I’m reminded of this and these negative feelings and it just destroys any existing motivation to work with CSS.
