Curved corner (border-radius) cross browser

Update 18 November , 2009: The htc file is updated by Nick F. Thanks man, you got time to check it out. Now supports FF, Chrome, Safari, IE6, IE7, IE8 (Os doesn’t matter).
This version of htc files can be found here and demo here

Update 17 August, 2009: This project is moved to Google Code. Please find the htc files on Links to htc file below will not work.

Update 16 July, 2009: htc file updated with support for IE8. Thanks to Kevin for coming up with a work-around. New htc file can be downloaded on border radius ie8.

Update 10 June, 2009: Some servers need to set MIME type for HTC to work this in IE6.
To do this, follow the steps.

1. Go to your cpanel and click the MIME Types link
2. Under MIME Type, add text/x-component
3. Under Extensions, add htc
4. Restart Apache Web server

As I’ve pledged, today I’m posting the Curved corner without any js stuff.

For firefox, you can set border-radius by prefixing “-moz” to the css property. And ofcource for webkit use “-webkit” . Now IE ?? .. As IE is not a good browser to work with css, we need to make it so. Here, you need to use a nice css hack. Some how I managed to have an htc file to make border-radius work in IE  🙂 . You can download it here. .

The Demo

1 . I’ve just made:

The CSS:

  1. .curved {
  2. -moz-border-radius:10px;
  3. -webkit-border-radius:10px;
  4. behavior:url(;
  5. }


<div class="curved">Curvd div</div>

The explanation :

Do you really want an explanation for this simple 3 line css ?. I don’t think so. Ofcourse if you need, I can.

Browsers :

All browsers 🙂


Many people failed to find a download link. So no one will miss it again now 🙂

    I placed the .htc in the main directory and I can see the page in IE8 with rounded corners to the two .div areas. One though has changed the background to black and I can change it at all. Any suggestions please?

    Just in case nobody realizes it IE also has a vendor prefix of -ms-
    At the time of these posts IE wasn’t a very good browser but, as of late 2012, it seems the people at Microsoft are trying to get their stuff together and making their browser more designer/developer friendly. Thanks Microsoft, for waiting 20 years to catch up.
