CSS3 has made an impact on the web industry. With its support of transitions, 3D transform and new pseudo class, it's possible to create a pure CSS slider without a single line of Javascript.

You have to use the latest browsers to be able to enjoy this. It won't work unless your browser supports all those latest features of CSS3. However, we have WOW Slider which support both Javascript and Pure CSS slider on either old or modern browsers.


WOW Slider

WOW Slider is a responsive jQuery image slider with amazing visual effects. When Javascript is not supported, it will have a pure CSS fallback, thus it's listed in this post as well.

I have been to much focussing on Javascript animation while CSS3 animation always was there in font of me. Great collection of tips and tricks you shared with us Kevin. Let see if I can find what I am looking for when I will try out and experiment with a few of them.
