Handling Transformations, Animations, and Special Effects with CSS

Abstract

Desktop Safari has long enabled you to make advanced visual effects directly from the style sheets, and logically Mobile Safari inherits these capabilities. Not only is it possible to apply two- and three-dimensional effects to many elements of your pages, but it is now also possible to precisely define advanced animations to make your web applications visually more lively and attractive—all of this without using a single line of JavaScript or relying on external plug-ins. Again, Flash no longer is a necessity when moving away from still pages. These enhancements are available thanks to the new CSS3 specification, and there are some extra treats from WebKit itself, such as CSS masks.
