I have been looking for the best way to provide simple animations in a website, the animations should be part of a rotating "banner" showcasing featured items on the homepage, I'm using a simple "slider" right now with static images but I'm trying to add a little more eye candy to it.
I have googled that question already, but didn't find an exact answer for my specific needs, what in these 3 solutions can provide:
1- Graceful degradation (Progressive enhancement)
2- Most compatibility
3- Best performance
The first item is the most important, as the website owner (well, my brother
Please also note that the animations has to fire only when the "slide" is changed, and if an item is shown first with an animated fade-in for example, it shouldn't show up before completely loading the page (something that drove me crazy with jquery, flash of the content before it disappear again and then show with the animation).
Thank you for reading all of this!
