jQuery.cssProps is useless in all browsers but IE6/7/8

jQuery.cssProps is an object in which you can "Add in properties whose names you wish to fix before setting or getting the value".

It is used by jQuery core to map the float property to "cssFloat" or "styleFloat" depending on the browser.

Unfortunately, the current implementation is not as generic as it is supposed to be: browsers implementing window.getComputedStyle will completely ignore the "fixed property" in jQuery.css(). It works well for the 'float' property but makes jQuery.cssProps useless for other properties.

It could be really useful to create basic cssHooks:

var vendorPrefixedTransform = detectFeature('transform');
jQuery.cssProps.transform = vendorPrefixedTransform;

It sounds like you're actually describing cssHooks - can you confirm?

Nope, I do not confirm.

I should be able to use jquery.cssProps to make my cssHooks smaller and faster.

We're not clear on what you are asking for here; can you explain further?

Using jQuery.cssProps, I should be able to create tiny pseudo-cssHooks like so:

jQuery.cssProps.transform = "-webkit-transform";

This feature is described in the comments of the jQuery.cssProps object: "Add in properties whose names you wish to fix before setting or getting the value"

Unfortunately, the implementation is only half-baked and trying to access the computed style will fail. This patch fixes this problem. I'll add a unit-test asap.
