Back in 2012, Internet Explorer 10 came out and, among other things, it finally supported CSS gradients and, in addition to that, the ability to animate them with just CSS! No other browser supported this at the time, but I was hopeful for the future.
Sadly, six years have passed and nothing has changed in this department. Edge supports animating gradients with CSS, just like IE 10 did back then, but no other browser has added support for this. And while animating
background-position or the
opacity or rotation of a pseudo element layered on top can take us a long way in terms of achieving cool effects, these workarounds are still limited.
