Pure CSS VS11-like 'working' animation


I thought it would be fun to try my hand at producing a similar effect as the Visual Studio 2012 installer working/busy animation using pure-CSS. I think it turned out pretty well, it works in Opera, Safari, Chrome and Firefox.

It’s interesting comparing how it came out in each of the browsers:

  1. Safari felt like it was really struggling to handle it,
  2. Chrome was drawing the circles a bit choppy due to the floating point positions,
  3. Firefox was really nice and smooth, and
  4. Opera was good but not quite as good as Firefox.
