CSS transitions & media queries Posted on 31 May 2011 • 14 comments While coding up the site for our Insites Tour, I happened across an accidental feature: a smooth transition on growing / shrinking type and image sizes when I resized the browser window. This isn’t particularly groundbreaking and has probably been put into use by others, but as I personally haven’t seen it used elsewhere on the web, I thought it’d be good to make a note of this happy accident. The basic premise is this: you use media queries to design responsive websites that adapt their layout according to browser width, and you constantly resize your browser to see how the site performs, but each time a query kicks in, there’s a harsh jump between the old styles and the new ones.
