Cross-Browser CSS3: Solutions and Considerations, by Louis Lazaris, is a compact and practical reference for dealing with browser inconsistencies in CSS3-based designs.

When designing and developing CSS3-based websites, it's common place to run into cross-browser challenges, especially when dealing with markets and niches whose audiences are still using older versions of Internet Explorer.

In this 40 page eBook, Louis Lazaris discusses the factors that need to be considered before attempting to use mimic, a CSS3 feature in all non-supporting browsers. This eBook provides readers with long-term principles that should guide their development, and provides numerous sources (including CSS3-based JavaScript libraries and plugins) to help developers make informed decisions on what's available.

All the information in the eBook is presented in a balanced manner, with careful consideration for both benefits and drawbacks to each method, to ensure that your projects are as fast-loading and maintainable as possible without sacrificing your brand.
