Guide: How to Support Background-Size: Cover and Contain in Internet Explorer 8

Internet Explorer 8Background-size:cover and background-size:contain were designed for one purpose — to make life easier when working with background images. And you know what? They do!

Unfortunately, some projects still require Internet Explorer 8 support, which does NOT like the background-size property.

Luckily, that’s where this awesome polyfill comes in!

Simply implement a bit of CSS linking to a /backgroundsize.min.htc, and then modify your htaccess (for Apache [adds mimetype for htc]) and you’re ready to go.

Very easy. Very useful.
