Is it ideal to use CSS3 even though it's not supported in all browsers?

Is it ideal to use CSS3 even though it's not supported in all browsers?

Problem

I started a new web project today, and having never used CSS3 (always used CSS 2, but have not done web development for 1.5 years) I decided to use it for this project.

Straight off the bat I had issues. I tried to implement a linear gradient, and seen it needs 6 implementations for different Browsers - including latest browsers.

Is it too early to start using CSS3 projects, it just seems like so much code bloat.

Solution

Sure, you just have to make a decision if you want your page to look the exact same in every browser (hint: you don't). You can check support of CSS3 features here: http://html5please.com/.

You could also try to use SASS or LESS and functions to abstract away the double / triple / sextuple implementations for you.
