Home Forums CSS Image preloading with CSS in Chrome Re: Image preloading with CSS in Chrome


I did try using sprites, it was the first hing i did. But that would not work either for some weird reason. Anyways afterwards I wanted to use CSS transitions on hover, and when using sprites you get a sliding effect instead of a fading effect, so i went back to separate images.

Edit: The reason sprites would not work may be that I restated the background-image on :hover instead of just the position, however sprites will not work for me for the reason that i stated.
