Animations and transitions on websites need to be smooth

Today, there are many gorgeous sites designed with animations and modern browser support in mind. We’re not talking about video but rather pictures and popups gliding on the screen to show you something important. You probably see previews or an app or a picture that ¬†shows content that’s easy on the eye.

Even with a modern computer or mobile devices, these animations be appear choppy. I will describe solution to this:


Velocity is an animation engine with the same API as jQuery’s $.animate(). It works with and without jQuery. It’s incredibly fast, and it features color animation,transforms, loops, easings, SVG support, and scrolling. It is the best of jQuery and CSS transitions combined.

Velocity was built to augment where Jquery and Jquery Transit have left off. See CSS transitions that use your video card.
