One of the main drawbacks of website design has always been the strict rectangular layout imposed by the box model. The CSS Transforms module (http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-transforms/) seeks to give designers greater freedom by making it possible to shift, rotate, scale, and skew elements. Originally, there were three separate modules: for two- and three-dimensional transforms, and for scalable vector graphics (SVG). These have been merged into a single module, which is currently only a working draft. However, browsers have made significant progress with two-dimensional transforms. They’re supported by all mainstream browsers except IE 8 and earlier.
