I know right. One of those features you were hoping for... around a decade ago.
Shit the web moves slowly.
A little demanding, wouldn't expect live Photoshop style image manipulation in the browser ;)
Kind of my point. We should. But it just all moves way too slow.
I think it moves fast than it did in the past. Maybe we should yes, but my point is I don't think elaborate Photoshop manipulation that would only be used in certain cases was very high on the list of demands ;)
This is awesome, one step closer to getting that sweet frosty look from iOS on web. Next question is whether it's worth it or not once more browsers support it
By the time this gets support on most browsers, iOS will have a new design and this style will be super dated.. sigh
I haven't seen the blur achieved before. Is this common knowledge now of doing the blur effect?
This is a relatively new feature that hasn't made it into any browsers yet (apart from Webkit Nightly).
Right now, the
filterproperty is available in most Evergreen browsers, which can blur the elements themselves, but not whatever is behind them like
backdrop-filter. Support for
filterwas dropped in IE9+: http://caniuse.com/#feat=css-filters
