All browsers add vendor-specific CSS features.

Microsoft are involved in the group looking at standardising a feature
along these lines.

They've been first past the post in introducing an implementation.

I'm hardly a big Microsoft fan, but I think their behavior is
commendable in this instance.

By contrast, WebKit on Windows doesn't even honor system high contrast settings.

Since standardisation is a whiles off, such aids are likely to make
use of vendor-specific features like the one Microsoft have introduced
for some time.
