I have the following css code:

-webkit-gradient(linear, left bottom, left top, from(#5AE), to(#036));

Which displays the background very nicely in Chrome. Internet explorer just displays a white background. I tried applying CSS 3 pie, which didnt change anything.

Following is my css:

body {

  behavior: url(css3pie/;

    color: #000000;

    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

    margin: 0px;

    padding: 0px;

    /*background:url("../image/bg.png") repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;*/

    background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left bottom, left top, from(#5AE), to(#036)); 



Best Answer:

-webkit-gradient() is for webkit browsers only (Safari, Chrome, etc). This means it will not work in Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, or any other browser that does not support -webkit-gradient().

If you want to get gradient in all modern browsers, try the following code:

background: -o-linear-gradient(top, rgba(0,51,102,1), rgba(85,170,238,1));

/* Firefox 3.6+ */

background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, rgba(0,51,102,1), rgba(85,170,238,1));

/* Chrome 7+ & Safari 5.03+ */

background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0, rgba(0,51,102,1)), color-stop(1, rgba(85,170,238,1)));

/* Newer Browsers */

background: linear-gradient(top, rgba(0,51,102,1), rgba(85,170,238,1));

/* IE5.5 - IE7 */

filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Gradient(GradientType=0,StartColorStr=#FF003366,EndColorStr=#FF55AAEE);

/* IE8 */

-ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Gradient(GradientType=0,StartColorStr=#FF003366,EndColorStr=#FF55AAEE)"

Note: You don't need any external JavaScript library to get gradients in IE. Simply use the CSS from above ;) However, for your own sanity, I would suggest using a preprocessor such as LESS or SASS so you can have all of the browser-specific versions automatically generated.
