Hello, Safari with version 5 doesn’t support calc(). :( and AFAIK it’s the last version for Windows.

It really limits creativity in some point and I don’t want to write hacks for where I use it. I’m curious about your advices.

Do you suggest ignoring Safari 5 and lower?

Thanks!

I find the calc() method very usefull, but I don’t think it’s time to use it right now, since it has partial support or no support at all for most of the browsers. http://caniuse.com/calc

Did you look at the graphic of the link you shared? It’s actually supported on most browsers, not the other way around…

Honestly I don’t care IE 8, but Safari 5 is important since it’s the latest version for Windows. But I don’t know its market share.

Yes. Android 4.2-4.3, Safari 5, Opera 12(and mobile), IE9 ( I don’t know how it works, since it’s partial support), still are a problem.

First of all, I would not use it because of Android, and second Safari.

IE8: I don’t care, it’s a very old browser which was designed for Win XP that is not supported by its developers anymore.

Safari for windows has been discontinued. And market share is non existent. calc() works in IE9 except when you try to position background images with it. Official Twenty Fourteen theme is using calc().

IE9’s partial support is explained there:
Partial support in IE9 refers to the browser crashing when used as a background-position value

Opera mini doesn’t support anything xD I don’t use it but my guess is that 90% of websites look awful on opera mini, have a look: http://caniuse.com/#compare=chrome+36,op_mini+5.0-7.0

And as dSKY mentioned, WordPress’ oficial theme Twenty Fourteen is using it, so, in response to the original question, I think it is quite reasonable to use it..
