    Hey,

    This article will explain a little more about what types are supported and used, and which are outdated and not used.

    Hope this helps.

    So are they useful to learn? Or something that rarely gets used? I am trying to learn it using the 2009 method and it's very confusing and I am wondering whether or not I should skip learning it if not useful.

    Hi,

    Its completely up to you and your preferred method of design, i personally do not use them, and never have. In some instances it maybe useful to use them, I am not sure how well they will perform on IE, and with firefox you will need to use moz-transition, for the transitions. I have just found another article for you which will walk you through using these, with some cool examples, if you already fammilair, ignore it.

    Hope this has helped.
