What is Progressive Enhancement?
If I would have to define it the simplest way, it is a way of building content for the web from bottom up, where the bottom is defined by older, feature-less browsers, and the top is the latest browser line around.
I have never read a really good post on how progessive enhancement should be done, so these are my thought on how I would do it.
I say they are both wrong. They forget something really important. We’re talking about billions of users on the web and their future usage of what we create. The point and goal of our endevour should be more then bussiness or fighting for a believe. We should just provide what is the best for them. This definitely means that both parties are either wrong or both parties are right.
Do this instead
