Actually not bad although I still don’t like the trend toward UI minimization
Kinda makes sense for stupid widescreen laptop monitors
A few CSS improvements… does rounded corners now but still not text filters like drop shadows
It now supports alpha transparency CSS via rgba( ), BUT it still applies the old proprietary IE DX filters (so adds them) !
I had CSS code that worked in both IE 8 and below, and standards compliant browsers, and it’s porked in IE9 because the transparency is applied twice
Had to add conditional comments to restrict the filters to just IE8 and below, you might want to check if you have anything similar
Oh, and color management. Oh dear. What a joke. Took me a while to work out what was going on, all the “tests” look right but my sRGB images are still wrong on my wide gamut monitor.
So it “converts” images that aren’t sRGB, to sRGB, but then totally fails to actually apply the monitor profile. So if you had an image in Adobe RGB, it wouldn’t be quite as bad as unmanaged, but you just end up with the way sRGB looked before. Waste of time. Idiots!
That guy explains it well.
