What’s CSS3

    CSS3 is the latest evolution of the Cascading Style Sheets language and aims at extending CSS2.1. It brings a lot of long-awaited novelties, like rounded corners, shadows, gradients, transitions or animations, as well as new layouts like multi-columns, flexible box or grid layouts. The following are just a few benefits to using CSS3.

Simple and Independent

    Unlike CSS2 (which came as one big package), CSS3 is made of small modules which makes the application easier and simpler to use. Selectors, Color, Box Model, Backgrounds and Borders, Text Effects, 2D/3D Transformations and user interface are some of the most useful modules that CSS3 offers.

Speedy Development

    Being an independent language which is not dependent on JavaScript, CSS3 loads a lot faster than its precursors. The language is pretty well compatible with all the browsers available. The individual modules also help in saving a lot of time during the development, implementation and end of production.

Platform Independent and Cross Browser Compatible

    When it comes to being platform independent, nothing can beat CSS3. It takes independence to a new level. It also offers designers with special processes which allow them to design components in a very easy manner. Although not under the W3C standards, CSS3 shows compatibility with most of the browsers available which helps because the end users will have a huge range of browsers to choose from.

Images and Animations

    Aside from easy coding, one of the best qualities of CSS3 is that it helps in enhancing the look of a website or pages immensely. It allows easy integration of the various images, which includes 3D, in the project. It also allows easy inclusion of videos and animations as well. Customization of the images can also be done with ease.
