@Nadya678, there was even a [petition to browser vendors](https://www.change.org/p/microsoft-mozilla-opera-dont-make-webkit-prefixes-a-de-facto-standard) not to implement `-webkit-`prefixed features back in 2012, but [it was too late](https://www.sitepoint.com/its-time-to-rethink-vendor-prefixes-in-css/). The good thing is that since then browsers stopped to introduce experimental features via prefixes and started to hide them behind the flags instead, so prefixes are mostly a [legacy compatibility issue](https://compat.spec.whatwg.org/) now.
