I suspect you’ve seen it here http://reports.quickleft.com/css


FWIW it’s way smaller than what I expected; I don’t think 7% is ‘huge’ 
either. There is also no trend data here, nor any indication of how 
recently that 7% was written. So I doubt any conclusions can be drawn from 
this single data point.

All vendors used to ship prefixed features. Two of them have largely given 
up on the practice, which means new content does not need to account for 
their prefixes. So it already *is* happening.
