Happy new year everyone and welcome to 2014!
Every year I get a bit of time off over the holiday season and I like to spend a portion of that time fixing up my websites and working on my side projects. This years mission was to overhaul and integrate 4 of my key sites together (My Personal Website, This Blog, Digital Cake Podcast & Create CSS3).
Today I want to talk about Create CSS3.

Some of you are probably already aware about my site Create CSS3 which allows you to generate prefixed CSS3 super quickly and easily. To this day it is one of the only generators that supports all the prefixes for the major browser (most only support webkit and moz). I’ve been so happy with how easy it is to generate multi CSS3 properties so quickly. Developers from all over the world are adopting it as their favourite CSS3 generator.
I wanted to keep it a leader in the CSS3 generator space as well as make it more useful for people who are unfamiliar with CSS3. Therefore I am here today to announce a major upgrade to createcss3.com which is sure to please developers of all skill levels.

Hey all! It’s been around 3-4 years since I created my personal website, and in web years it had reached the end of it’s life and needed to be put down.
This means a new site! Woo!
I’ve pushed the envelope quite a bit with this new site. Changed the way you navigate, used CSS3’s 3D transforms mixed with subtle HTML5 videos in the background. The end result is I have blocked out crap browsers from visiting the site, they can still visit my old site though. But hey! We can’t support old browsers forever. Chrome is the browser to use if you can. The latest version (21) is phenomenal with how smoothly it handles the torture I put it through. Safari isn’t too far off. Firefox I have allowed but I have turned off the HTML5 videos as it really struggled with it turned on. It’s still sluggish and glitchy though. Opera doesn’t fair too badly although it doesn’t support 3D transforms yet. IE is completely out until I get my hands on a version on IE10 to try.

Okay, so I’m guilty of not updating my blog for about a year, but it’s okay, I’ve got a helpful update for you today!
Last year I showed you all how to start using CSS3 today. A year later more browsers are supporting more CSS3 properties and with IE 10 on the horizon we will likely have all the browsers supporting a lot of key CSS3 properties such as transitions and animations.
That’s all positive, but the problem is different browser versions require the prefix, newer versions don’t. This is quite annoying to keep up with and write code for. There are a stack of CSS3 generators out there, the problem is when I’m writing code I know what properties I need and want to quickly stack them together and copy them into my stylesheet. A year and a half ago I built createcss3.com which was a CSS3 generator. Back then it was simple, it just supported a basic top to bottom gradient, border radius and outer box shadow for Firefox and Webkit.
I have had a few people in my ear telling me to update it recently so I gathered all the knowledge I have learned over the past 18 months and put that into what I believe is now the best CSS3 generator out there at the moment.
Let’s take a look at why it’s so good!
