Com database to append vendor prefixes to an already compiled CSS file. The term postprocessor means that it processes the CSS after (post) it has been created. css after we save it. css file, opens it, adds all the necessary vendor prefixes to each property and value, saves the file, and closes it. In addition, you can configure it to create a new separate file as well. Once this is done, we can use this file in our website/app. com database; this means that as soon as a browser vendor no longer requires its prefix for a CSS property or value, all we need to do is run our CSS files through Autoprefixer and it will be up to date in seconds.

The reason the nonvendor-prefixed declaration should always be last is, if the browser vendor modifies its prefix or drops the support for it, the last line will always override anything above it because of the cascade. This makes the whole CSS rule more future-proof. Plus, we won't have to rewrite our style sheets every time a vendor changes something. Now, many CSS3 properties and values do not need all vendor prefixes. Most of the time, they only need a couple of vendor prefixes, and other times the nonvendor-prefixed - properties or values is enough.

Yes, it's a programming/scripting language focused on increasing the efficiency of web designers and web developers creating CSS.
