HTML5, CSS3 & JS Experiments

By Martin Ivanov

Notifications Bar

Demo

Notification toolbar, written entirely in CSS3 and without a single line of JavaScript. Click the arrow on the right to expand/collapse. Ain't it cool?

Observe the purple (my thoughts are with you and your family Eric Meyer) bar at the top of the page. Click the arrow button on the right to expand/collapse the bar. This experiment is also available wrapped as HTML5 Web Component.
