CSS3 Columns!

I was so excited today to discover CSS3′s new support for columns. This is something that I really have wanted for a while, but felt it was too difficult and took too much time to otherwise try and implement.

I came home today and immediately put columns to work on my About page (which has since been merged into the homepage). I was a little surprised to see that both Safari and Firefox did not support the simple

.some-class{
columns: 2;
}

but excited to see that it worked once I added
.some-class{
-moz-column-count:2;
-webkit-column-count:2;
columns: 2;
}

I just wanted to share that with you. I’m still tinkering around with the new site and I hope to add more features, posts and work very soon. Also, I received an invite to basekit, which is a new CMS/coding platform that is supposed to cut up your psd for you. I’ll give it a try and review very soon.

One last note, I stumbled across a great article on Smashing Magazine today entitled How to Support Internet Explorer and Still Be Cutting Edge. I enjoyed it so much, I actually retweeted it twice! It’s actually what turned me on to this wonderful bit of CSS3 and I would encourage everyone to jump over and give it a read.
