Modernizr, use generated class or not ?

  • # July 7, 2012 at 9:40 am


    starting with Modernizr

    what is correct use to target older browsers, using the default generated class in HTML (example 1.]) ?

    Test border shadow

    /* 1.] uses HTML classes */
    .no-borderradius .box {border: 3px solid green;}
    .borderradius .box {
    -webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 0 5px #333;
    box-shadow: inset 0 0 5px #333;

    /* 2.] but this works too */
    .box {border: 10px solid red;}
    .boxshadow .box {
    border: none;
    -webkit-box-shadow: inset 0 0 5px #333;
    box-shadow: inset 0 0 5px #333;

    I noticed you can use only class .box for older IE
    then just override it in modern browsers, supporting this feature.boxshadow .box with border: none;

    which one of these is correct use?
    (I believe no.1)

    what to use Modernizr for?
    simple CSS styling stuff can be achieved without it like

    .ie7 #content {border: 1px solid #000;}

    this is where I found it 1st time and it is slightly confusing to me

    I never got into using Modernizr, but for question 2, rather then just applying a border, you can actually have modernizr create the box shadow for the user using java instead of a fallback.
