Transit provides some super-smooth CSS transitions and transformations for jQuery.
Simply include the script, and instead of using jQuery 1.4+ transition, use Transit’s animate.
And there’s a lot of different styles!
Transit transitions any CSS property and does it much, much smoother than if you use jQuery’s default .animate().
If you scroll through all the different examples and styles available, you’ll see how smooth it is and that there are plenty of styles to choose from!
All the modern browsers are supported, and if someone pulls up your site running an older browser [shakes fist in the air], Transit will skip the transformations and simply do the standard CSS opacity, margin, etc … without all the fancy-schmancy animation.
I always like a solid fallback. 🙂
