Recently I talked about CSS cross-browser gradients and last week I wrote again about CSS3 gradients. So what I’m going to do today? I will show you how to put the CSS gradient feature in practical use.
In this article you will see how you can create a set of gradient buttons just with CSS (no images).
When I just finished creating the animated 3d helix, I came up with an idea that would look a lot like that one. Instead of having the flip animation on top of each other, I wanted to have them placed next to each other. This looks a lot like an animation most of you will know; a rotating billboard.
When you only show two images, it would be pretty simple since the CSS would look a lot like the CSS from my previous demo. That’s why I wanted to take it just a little step further and let the billboard show three images.
I recently came across a great looking set of navigational buttons designed by Orman Clark of Premium Pixels. I’m a big fan of his design style and decided to whip together a quick CSS3/HTML version of the buttons. Check out the demo and feel free to download the example zip file as well.
CSS3 is still under development and not all browsers support it, which mean this CSS3 Lightbox solutions are not cross-browser compatible (only the latest versions of the modern non-IE web browsers support CSS3).
In this post, I’ll be featuring 10 awesome CSS3 Lightbox and modal windows that you can use on you web applications.
This is part of a series of guest posts covering tips and tricks for working with CSS. These techniques, along with web fonts, make rich interactive sites achievable with simple and accessible standards-based markup and CSS. Today’s guest post was written by Andy Clarke, author of Hardboiled Web Design.
In this example we’ll use CSS3 two-dimensional transforms to add realism to a row of hardboiled private detectives’ business cards.
On my new portfolio site, I included a neat effect which spins the social icons with the help of a CSS transform and transition when you hover over them. Nothing amazing but definitely a nice enhancement. I used Komodo Media’s excellent social network icon pack (along with a couple I created myself) which look fantastic. Let’s see how it’s done.
As you probably found out, these days, the The World-Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has unveiled the HTML5 Logo. They launched more than a logo as they got also a full branding, including badges, t-shirts and stickers.
So, I suppose that’s a good thing, that HTML5 got some branding, sounds very interesting!
While looking at it and admiring it, as I find it very nice, I thought about how can I do it with CSS3.
One of the most popular articles on Marcofolio.net in 2010 was the 3d animation using pure CSS3. In my opinion, it was one of the best articles for myself as well, since I learned some pretty neat stuff about CSS3 and 3d capibilities.
Shortly after I placed my article online, Chris Spooner wrote a very cool article called Super Cool CSS Flip Effect with Webkit Animation. It showed me some great other 3d techniques that can be achieved using pure CSS3.
Those two articles inspired me to create yet another very cool 3d CSS demo, that I like to call an Animated CSS3 helix using 3d transforms.
As we announced with our second Platform Preview last year, IE9 supports CSS3 Media Queries. CSS3 Media Queries enable you to style pages based on different display surface factors such as width, height, orientation, resolution, etc. Developers can use these factors to customize their sites for viewing on different devices such as a small-screen netbook or a widescreen monitor. In this post, I talk more about CSS3 Media Queries and the various scenarios they enable…
