yawn.. looks prety crappy compared to Flash.. how long is it going to take? 5 years? 10? I know this is ‘cool’ from webdev’s perspective but come on! Real people don’t care if it’s standards compliant, w3c, css 4.1 or whatever. we’ve got the tools to make nice animations, transformations and other gfx. Yet, instead of trying to make them as mainstream as possible we strive to produce some standards based, community driven crap that ‘ll take decades to improve to the point that other technolgies manifest today. this is weak.
Is this an implementation of Webkits CSS transforms? Or is it SVG / Canvas?
Just noticed the 2nd tab! So it’s CSS transforms, but you’ve tagged the post jQuery. Hmmm…
Css,Canvas, or both ?
Soon you can add a motion blur effect to your document title? Awesome!
Looking at the slightly off position of the letters, I say SVG. Beside SVG makes such thing relatively easy thanks to foreign objects.
Plus if it were done in Canvas, all the event listeners, and active elements ( text inputs, drop down, …. ) would be completely lost.
Now if only microsoft could bury IE6 and enforce the upgrade path…
Layouting advice, crazy effects and beautiful typography.
