    so i took a look at the new SCREENCAST for css tricks thaat chris posted the other day. and it just got me thinging, since you can do all of those siquencing in css with just a few images and a little bit of intuition, would it be possible to get rid of javascript all together when making a slideshow?!

    its just a thought, i would love feed back.


    I imagine it’d be possible, but it would need to be cross-browser compatible which might be very difficult to achieve, whereas current js solutions will work on pretty much any browser. I don’t think from a page loading time point of view it’d be worth the effort, as with sliders the part that takes longest to load is the images themselves – not the script. For example I use nivo slider quite a lot, and the JS file is only 6.9kb.


    like @brightonmike said, cross-browser compatibility would be a major issue, which is why we’re cursed to rely on javascript for the time being.

    there are some css-only slideshow solutions that do work cross-browser, but they are very limited in functionality/format. check out if you want to see more. this guy’s been making css-only slideshows since 2006.
