2nd February 2010
For Firefox, Opera and IE8
24th February 2011 - Now works in Safari and Chrome
Based on an original idea by Román Cortés

Applying the previous example of animation to the demonstration by Román Cortés we can remove the need for the scroll bar and allow the mouse to do the scrolling. Well we could in Safari and Chrome if they implemented the 'general sibling selector' fully and allowed this to be select the sibling element on :hover.
However, it does work in Firefox, Opera AND IE8. In Opera just the mouse moving over the image box to see the animation, in Firefox and IE8 just place your mouse in the box (there is no need to move the mouse) and it will trigger the animation.
Remember this is only for fun and the original idea for the overlay is all due to Román Cortés.
The only 'niggle' I have with this is that the can does a reverse roll.
