        Last night @jensimmons presented CSS3 Shapes to a packed house at the SFHTML5 Meetup. Trust me, everyone there wants CSS3 Shapes compatibility in Edge- it's a layout game-changer for sure!! IE 10 has a real chance at getting out in front in the array of browsers; CSS3 Shapes implemented properly will be one of the ways for IE 10 to truly be on the cutting "Edge" (I couldn't resist).

        Yes, please implement CSS Shapes Level 1!

        Shapes Level 1 is now fully supported in Chrome, in Safari (both on Mac and iOS), and Opera. Firefox and Internet Explorer are now in a race to see who'll be last to implement it. http://caniuse.com/#feat=css-shapes

        I've been teaching CSS Shapes in conference presentations, and people are *incredibly* excited about Shapes. When I presented at CSS Dev Conf, people's mouths were literally hanging open, eyes wide with excitement. It was non-stop comments like these: https://twitter.com/elmofromok/status/521699333138165760 and https://twitter.com/lavalight/status/521699890900914176

        This is one of those CSS properties that is going to take off quickly. It's a place where IE can regain developer respect by getting to this sooner, rather than later.
