Responsive Images - Best Practices

I'm interested using what I consider "truly responsive" image structure like <picture> ,srcset. But it appears the browsers aren't supportive yet.

2 Questions:

1) What are current best practices?

2) In the meantime, what are the downsides to using css @media queries and background imgs?

Thanks Dustin.

I've watched several tuts and tv shows here, as well as other places, but it seems to be a quickly evolving problem with lots of differing solutions. I'm just curious as to most up-to-date best practices.

Brian Jones, I'm not sure if you've come across this one, but here's a recent article on responsive images.
