As far as clip I haven't worked with it yet, so I couldn't tell you why is not working with IE8, but my guess will be that in order to make it work in IE8 could cause a performance problem (you just got to love IE8 :mrgreen:).


As for a fallback is not that hard, check this post in order to see how:



Hope this helps,

I believe I know what might be causing the problem - apparently the rect() values in clip must be space-delimited in IE7 and earlier (unlike the comma-delimited that the standard calls for and everyone else does including IE8 and later). I suspect you're seeing the behavior in your IE8 because you're testing the files locally and IE8 slips into compatibility mode for local files, thus it reports as being IE7 in the agent string.


Would you test the attached preview release of 1.9.2 and let us know if it resolves things for you?

Thanks for answering!


I was testing the files on codepen through browserstack.com.


I have successfully tested with the updated files on IE8 (both Windows XP and Windows 7). Resolved!


Updated test:
