first there was table-layout…

then there was div-layout…

now html5-layout is coming gradually to our browsers… but is it a good idea to do html5 layout in 2013?

5% of all users are still using ie8 (no html5 support at all)

20% are online with an newer version of internet explorer ( ie9/10 ) but both browsers are still pretty lame at supporting html5.

some mobile browsers have even better html5 support than desktop browsers! 😀

so let’s put it like this: 70% of all browsers should have proper html5 support, so you can gradually start experimenting how html5 layouts… behave, but if you need a website that is viewable on any device, than you should stick to div or table.
