HTML Responsive Images Art Direction with the Picture Element The Picture Element

Is this cross browser supported and it this an element only native to HTML5 (so not supported on ÌE8 +) ?


1 Answer

It's not widely supported, and most definitely not in IE8.

Check out the Picture element page on Can I Use for browser support.

It's not actually part of the HTML5 specification, but is actually part of the WHATWG's Living Standard for HTML.
