Debugging CSS Keyframe Animations Creating CSS animations may be about learning the syntax, but mastering a beautiful and intuitive-feeling animation requires a bit more nuance. Since animations command so much attention, it's important to refine our code to get the timing right and debug things when they go wrong. After tackling this problem myself, I thought I'd collect some of the tools that exist to aid in this process. Using Negative Delay Values Say you have multiple animations running at the same time and you'd like them to stagger just a bit. You can use animation-delay, but don't necessarily want the viewer to visit the page and have some things not moving, waiting for their delay.

A UX Idea: I know where you are aiming! If you are a web developer or designer you know what :hover selector essentially does; browser detects current mouse cursor position, checks if the cursor is inside the element then adds the css rules you previously defined. This is a significant feature in terms of usability; you can create a drop-down and get rid of the all the clutter of secondary items or you can reveal an info popup to explain the role of a button. However, there is a drawback which is overlooked. Sometimes, you urge user to move the mouse on a specific element to go the actual target. Consider the following example, As you see on gmail, you need to hover the plus icon to reach emoticons button.
