We’re all concerned about browser compatibility, and opinions will differ. For me and most of my clients, this would be a perfectly acceptable fallback. Perhaps with more experiments like this that yield similar results, these statistics could be cited to both employers and clients. If a website could be produced 49% faster (or even half of that) with CSS3, imagine the benefits: money saved, earlier launch times, more time spent on adding “extras” that push the product over the top, not to mention a better browsing experience for everyone.

Well researched post about old vs new style build. Some good points in the comments too.

What do I even mean by real world? It’s very simple: Accessibility doesn’t and shouldn’t exist in a vacuum. The real world is messy. It isn’t black and white but every shade of grey in between. This applies to accessibility but also to our craft in general. We have to make compromises. We have to make choices. We have to change tactics mid-stream. And we have to have it finished yesterday.

Nice, detailed post on HTML5 and ARIA support by Derek Featherstone.
