The following is a guest post by Fabrice Weinberg. Fabrice is a regular contributor around here. He's always looking forward to the latest technologies and possibilities. Here on the outset of iOS7, he looks into recreating a particular effect that you might not guess is even possible on the web. It's tricky, uses bleeding edge features, but doable!
Fabrice Weinberg shows us a future web technology in which you can use just a part of a bit of media. In this case, a part of an image. The ability to do this will open up some new possibilities for designers.
Fabrice Weinberg explains how to combine CSS3 gradients, multiple backgrounds, and animations to create the Facebook loading animation with a single HTML element. Fancy stuff, folks!
