CSS animationsAuthor: SamMorgan
CSS animations are relatively new, but they're already having a huge impact on web design in general. Many people are now debating the merits of these new animations compared with the older script-driven animation techniques.
One of the biggest overall trends in webpage design is the simple fact that it is getting easier and easier for people to do it all themselves without a great deal of technical knowledge. This just wasn't the case twenty years ago. People had to know a lot about webpage design in order to create webpages of their own. The best website builders were not around then. People usually could not even create the most basic websites and blogs on their own. This has completely changed today.
One of the defining traits of CSS style animations is that they run more efficiently and effectively than most of the other animations that people will use under the same circumstances. The performance of these animations will continue in a much smoother manner than a lot of people would expect, especially if they have done a lot of work like this in webpage design in the past.
With CSS style animations, it gets even easier for the people who want to be able to make the animation sequences perform as well as possible, because they can allow the browser to control that animation sequence. Updates won't happen all the time and the system will not be as stressed as it usually would be under the same circumstances, making everything that much easier for everyone involved.
