CSS3 is the latest version of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). CSS is a style sheet language for styling and presenting your markup language such as HTML. CSS3 stands above its predecessors in every way. It provides new features and modules like selectors, box model, media queries, grid layout, transitions, animations etc. An interesting module of CSS3 is the animation property. With this property, you can make your elements animate.

CSS animation lets you move or animate elements around your web page. The goal of this property is to make your websites come to life. For over a decade, we have relied on markups and scripting to give a sense of animation to our websites. We can now leave a portion of that part to CSS. We still need JavaScript and jQuery for heavy animations. But markups can leave the animation to CSS now. We have listed some creative CSS3 animation examples below for you. You wouldn’t have imagined that these were done using CSS.
