MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek:

This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.


Element.currentStyle is a property which is a proprietary alternative to the standardized window.getComputedStyle method. It is available in old versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer.


Not part of any specification.

Microsoft has a description on MSDN.
