What if we're not using Chrome?
Hi Guil Hernandez My name is Sam, and I'm currently following your course on CSS foundations. There is a problem I keep running into because I'm using a different browser than you are. I've read that programmers favor Chrome over Firefox so I get why you use it. But I'm using Firefox and as a result a lot of the examples you do don't work for me because Firefox version 35.0 uses the unprefixed versions of a lot of the lines of CSS that you write. And for some the syntax is completely different. I've checked the forum and some people say the vendor prefixes should work on firefox, but it doesn't. It would be nice if you could mention in the videos what the syntax would be on other browsers for example. Like you know these tutorials do, they mention the keyboard shortcut for mac users and windows users. For example "press cmd + c if you're on a mac or ctrl + c if you're on a pc" you could like quickly mention as you do in many videos " i will type webkit, because i'm on chrome. If you're on Firefox or IE it's ........." you know what I mean. Because I usually need to stop and google or some other site to see what's the syntax for Firefox and this slows me down a lot and is very frustrating. Thank you for you time. by the way you rock.

I have all the browsers on my machine for this very reason. I prefer Firefox since I've been on it for so long, but I also use Chrome during some of the challenges since it works with the live preview in Brackets (my editor of choice) and Firefox didn't, although I believe it may now. Anyway, good luck with your learning.
