Vendor prefixes do bring in some perils. In our country --- China, the mobile browsers almost base on Webkit except Opera, so some web site only are webkit optimizing.
Such as : http://3g.qq.com/, http://sina.cn/ , http://m.taobao.com/ and so on.  Please see this CSS :http://3gimg.qq.com/wap30/css/info/g_index3_new.css

I'm in charge of the web site's compatibility and I encounter some problems.

Opera Mobile 12.1 has supported some unprefixed CSS rules.  I hope even more browsers support unprefixed CSS rules, or other better solutions.

Best regards,

The fact you need some kind of "experimental" flag doesn't mean you need prefixes...

My point of view is still that vendor prefixes are not the good solutions and should be replace on the long run by something else.

Best regards,
