WebKit and Firefox still use a vendor prefix on the gradient images, because the spec is in the very early stages. It hasn't even been published as a Working Draft.

Not really.

Use the vendor prefixes.

> P.S. The reason why I do not prefer vendor-specific styling is that it is vendor-specific and it does not validate in the W3C's CSS validation test. Speaking of which, would the linear-gradient / radial-gradient validate or not, I am assuming it would not due to its draft status? In other words, does styling have to be out of draft and recommended for use to validate?

I don't know if the validator checks for vendor-prefixed properties.
