I've found a website that uses
divs with classes that are names of new
HTML5 elements. At first it looked really ugly and silly, but then I gave it a secound thought and after all it's kind of smart and doesn't require older browsers to download
html5shiv.js (which is IMHO quite important as IE6-IE8 machines are often older/slower pcs on slow networks).
Supports all browsers:
<div class="section"> some content </div>
Doesn't support IE6, IE7, IE8:
<section> some content </section>
I've checked Twitter and Facebook and they're doing similar thing too, do you think it's worth sticking to the first (
div) style of coding and wait IE8 to drop way below 1% or I'm overreacting and a few kilobytes won't change that much?
