CSS DEMOSCSS3 - The future now - 'Hover-to-run' slideshow

Date : 24th January 2011

For all modern browsers

This demo is too wide for your mobile screen.
Please view on a tablet or PC.

  • End of Slideshow
    Move mouse off the icon to reset
    or tap 'RESET' if using the Safari Mobile Browser

Keep the mouse hovered over the above icon to run the slideshow.
Each slide will be displayed for approximately 3 seconds.
When the slideshow finishes, move the mouse off the icon to reset the slides.


Absolutely NO javascript.

Using CSS3 for non-IE browsers and TIME for Internet Explorer, this is a simple slideshow that will auto run when you keep the mouse hovering over the icon beneath the slides. There is no need to keep the mouse moving as the slideshow will continue running through the images until it reaches the last image. You will then need to move the mouse off the icon to reset the slideshow, or if you are using the Safari Mobile browser just tap the 'RESET' text to the left of the icon.

Browser support

Opera, Safari, Chrome, Firefox 4, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch will see all the CSS3 transition effects.

Internet Explorer will see instant changes in the images without the slide animation.

Firefox 3.x will not see the slideshow as it has no support for CSS3 transitions.
