Again, With the Links to Dave Hyatt w/r/t Dashboard


As for many of the animations, fades, slides, etc in the widgets themselves, they simply look so damn cool because of Safari’s rich support for CSS3 used in conjunction with DHTML. Do you know what I talked about at WWDC? Image replacement. Sliding doors. Using opacity to create fade effects. CSS3 text truncation. Web standards. All of which are being used to full effect in Dashboard widgets. Our standards support has grown so rich and our engine has become so smooth at effects that people are constantly mistaking pure JS/DHTML/CSS stuff that people are doing for something fancier. I’ve heard “That’s HTML?!” several times in the past week.

So. Fucking. Cool.
