Start your project right with Modernizr

Modernizr is a popular feature-detection JavaScript library that, since 2010, has helped web designers and developers take advantage of HTML5 and CSS3 despite uneven cross-browser support. It won .net’s Open Source App of the Year in 2011 and is packaged in the popular HTML5 Boilerplate so it’s fair to say that it is included on many websites going into production today.

Most tutorials that cover the basics of using Modernizr simply show the syntax and don’t discuss when and why you would use it in a project. Because of this many web designers don’t use the library to its full potential and aren’t aware of the ‘extras’ the library includes by default.
