jQuery Transit Brings CSS3 Animations to Our Favorite Library
Up until recently, it was difficult to recommend jQuery for developing mobile websites. Its
animate()method, which is so beloved on the desktop, performs poorly on mobile devices, where CSS3 is heavily optimized. Of course you could manage and trigger CSS3 transitions yourself, but that involves writing a lotof CSS.
This is where jQuery Transit comes along. This is a jQuery plugin that works the same way as the
animate() method, but is all powered by CSS3 transitions. You get the benefit of smooth animations on any device, and a syntax you know and love.
The plugin supports all major desktop and mobile browsers, including IE10+. It weighs at 2kb when gzipped and is released under the MIT license.
