It processes like a normal css file. The only difference is that only those browsers which are targeted will include the css file.

With targeting every browser in a separate CSS file is quite a lot of work that sometimes not possible within the constraints of a project. However, such process allows a developer to implement his often good ideas to use css without having to worry about complying to 5 (or more) browsers. Conditional CSS for all

As you can see advantages outweigh disadvantages of such a decision. It is necessary to look ahead and try to build a standard till CSS remains to be a problem with bugs in browsers. It is necessary to devise a system where the bugs can be addressed without reverting to hacks and tricks.
