Showcase of HTML5 and CSS3 for February 2011

1 Feb

Every month Stuff4Designers compiles the best showcases of work from around the web to help inspire and bring out your creative side. Enjoy!

CSS3 only tool tips

This is a great example of using CSS3 to control tool tips without using JavaScript.

CSS3 only toggle switch

Keeping with ‘CSS3 only tricks’ take a look at this toogle switch that uses CSS3 to achieve an effect usually accomplished with JavaScipt. It’s a really nice effect.

Link nudging/movement using CSS3

Yet another pure CSS3 animation that was previously only accomplished using JavaScript and css – as you mouse over the links they animate right. Very easy to setup and adjust for your own website.

HTML5 representation of the New York Subway Schedule

I love this site! It starts off with a single train, represented with a line and within a few seconds you have loads of lines all intersecting with each other. Every time a line goes over another line in its path a little violin plucking noise can be heard. Reminds me of an old screen saver I used have on my PC.

Pure CSS3 accordion

Accordions are a very handy technique used to display a lot of content in a nice bite-sized way to the end user. This particular accordion demo is using CSS3 to achieve the same effect you’re used to having with JavaScript.

Create a billboard style animation using CSS3

A great demo on using CSS3 to create an amazing billboard style for your images. I expect this one to be used on loads of websites this year! by Rebecca Fitzgerald-Smith
Rebecca FitzGerald-Smith has created a stunning new website that uses CCS3 gradients to help create a very creative looking header on her new blog redesign. By using CSS3 gradient, she can change the colour of her site in a few seconds and by targeting the different browsers she can have different headers on her site without making separate images. Very cool!
Disclosure: Rebecca FitzGerald-Smith is a writer for this blog.

3D HTML5 logo using Canvas and javascript

Really cool effect to create a spinning 3D logo.
