Google slides and IE - how did they do that

Hello all,

I have been reading for a few hours now the results of my web search for implementing Chrome Frame. I first saw it on the slides.html5rocks.com presentation.

In that presentation the indicate that you can use 2 methods (server side - or client side) The client side is just a nice little meta tag. The problem is, just putting that meta tag into the head of my page wont work - unless (I’m guessing) the user has installed the Chrome Frame Plugin for his version of IE.

However, their slide show works just fine in IE - and I didn’t install a thing… what gives?

I want to have some CSS3 styles on my page, and would like if I could include them for IE users - but If the users have to install a plugin I’m guessing they wont.

Anyway, does anyone know how the creators of slides.html5rocks.com got their css3 to work in IE so seamlessly?

What CSS3? It’s JS all the way.

And it never works in my IE8. Many JS errors.

While in my FF3.6.13 it works, the screens are stepping on each other, or start mid screen.

If you read the disclaimer you will find that the application has been written for Google Chrome. I tried it in several browsers with buggy results. In Chrome I had to use shift + arrow key L or R to move between frames. It then worked OK.

Hmm, strange.

I know the site was created for Chrome to show off its HTML5 power - but for me it works exactly the same in IE8 (Which is what they claim will happen on slide 15) - yet I have not installed or downloaded any plugins for IE?

@noonnope - The CSS3 I am specifically referring to is “text-shadow” but they have several slides showcasing other CSS3 which is working fine in my IE (somewhat buggy in FF). When you say its JS all the way - do you mean that they have written JS for all the CSS effects so that it will show in IE?

I guess I could simply ask, IS there anyway to use “text-shadow” in IE without requiring the user to have a special plugin?
