You may have heard about CSS3 transitions, and how you should never use them (or CSS3 in general) in commercial sites without a fallback because it’s not compatible across all browsers especially the older ones.
We think, though, that it’s important to start learning and practicing this technology now, because in the future, it could well send jQuery animations the way of Flash.
If you looked across the industry now, it wouldn’t seem like anything could knock jQuery from its perch, but it wasn’t too long ago when we all thought that about Flash.
This bring us on to our next point where mobile devices are getting faster and more people are browsing through the internet using their mobile devices. With the introduction of the lighting fast 4G network we need to ensure that websites are developed to work on the mobile devices. CSS3 transitions will be help produce smoother transitions on mobile devices as mobile devices are not powerful like desktop computers.

In the near future we may see a change in how transitions work on website and CSS3 being the major preference over jQuery or Flash that have been so dominate in the past.
