It doesn’t seem like the many CSS3 standards are so “new” anymore. Web designers have been implementing these properties into most of the new layouts I run into. Rounded corners and text shadows are commonplace for the modern web.
I want to use this article as a small case study into CSS3 effects. I’ll be examining some big-name websites and how they are building unique web interfaces. The techniques are not exclusive to any single entity – and it’s actually simple to put together some code of your own. But it is my hope these examples can spur new ideas in budding developers.
