As stated by one of the most talented designers known as Lea, we shouldn’t actually assume that proprietary elements that are not the spec are the real in CSS3. The distinction between CSS3 and vendor features isn’t really nitpicking. An awful thing about this was the emergence of code forking war-era.
All designers should be updated regularly to be in a position of distinguishing features that are in spec from those that are not. These arguments were somehow accepted, but on the other hand, they faced critical interrogations.
The cold fact
As a website developer, you should ensure that your best systems are very functional and in good use. For example, if it happens that you are a pet lover, you always try all means to ensure that the kittens are alive and well. This basically applies when it comes to your website systems.
The implication that an awful thing happens when we input standard properties alongside vendor features that doesn’t have spec is very disgusting. Even if the whole idea is overwhelming, proprietary features must experience poor designs in case of failure to pass them through recommended standard process. On the other hand, you should remember people who really fought hard to ensure that there is capability of writing codes without hacks and forks. Code forking has immensely improved due to courtesy of our website developers who understand the essence of progressive enrichment.
Implementation of CSS3 features
People have always been very eager to know the fellows who normally implement CSS3 features such as interoperability, open web, open standards and many others. You are tempted to think that people in charge of implementation values your website interest. Actually, such a thought is not the case as it was shown recently by vendor prefix drama.
Implementers are business-oriented
The fact is that; companies such as Microsoft, Mozilla, Google, Opera and even Apple happen to be the sole-deciders on the appropriate features to use.
All these organizations have got the target of offering the best customer services but most of all, their main interest is on profit making just like any other business organization. When introducing a new product into the market, they don’t do so for the sole purpose of your interest alone but for the customer.
Sadly enough, people who maintain or edit almost all W3C specs have got shares in either of these big companies. This means that these guys have got their own business interest such that they can’t even spend their lump some profits to enhance interoperability.
Web-kit adoption is the best option
The user experience is threatened when it comes to the use of non-webkit mobile audience. Here, companies such as Mozilla and Microsoft will take advantage of the situation, as their main aim is to enhance long term business interest. The interoperability enhancement is squeezed into arenas with financial inconvenience while the business interest usually comes first.
Designers are business-oriented
When deciding on the features to apply, designers normally prioritize their own business interests. They base their decisions on doing things that will enhance good financial sensibility with regards to their web standards.
Most web designers tend to compromise the validation to maintain the code. Instead of using images as recommended, they just sneak in proprietary features and some few hacks. After passing through this short-cut, they are given the dues plus some more work by their clients. The only thing they avoid is the occurrence of negative impact on the performance.
Proprietary code as a source of business
There has been a proof that proprietary code found within ‘web-kit only’ CSS is absolutely applicable for great business deals. This can be achieved by designing a project using simple elements. You just develop an application by coding HTML pages and jazzing them with CSS3 elements. They can then be fused together to work in chrome. This form of simple developed open web is mainly meant for business reasons.
Web standards isn’t a religion
Web standards have been taken by many people to be a religion. Just like religion, web designers tend to believe greatly in web-standards. If you are not careful as a designer, you may lose focus on the fact that it is just an occupation and even web standards may be preceded by the business interests.
As you have seen, business interests have engulfed the web design industry to a greater extent. Web designers should work in harmony in order to bring about solutions to various design problems. They should behave in such a manner that they won’t be caught up in quasi -morality and politics. It is expected from a web designer to maintain the highest standards of ethics while going through the day-to-day activities of designing. After all, it is a multimillion industry with many players.
