    See pen here

    So far I have seen this only happening in Chrome.

    I have a container div that contains an image and line of text.
    When hovering the image, it scales up and works as expected. But the text becomes slightly blurry and moves a tiny bit, which is the problem.

    The issue seems to be caused by my method of centring text – css transforms. When removing the following line (and the prefixed one), text looks fine when hovering on image (obviously not centred anymore but that’s not the issue):

    transform: translate(-50%, -50%);

    Could someone explain why this is happening please? Is there a way to fix it without changing the method of centring the text?

    Thanks! :)


    It just has to do with how browsers handle the rendering of elements during a css transition. AFAIK there isn’t anyway around it aside from eliminating the transform line (which you already know).
