Impact 1.50 – get smooth

We’ve just released an update to our inspiring Impact web gallery.

Until now Impact has used Javascript to handle the image transitions (either slides or fades), however the performance can be a little jerky on slower machines, especially if there are a large number of images.

The latest version of Impact makes use of an emerging technology – CSS Animations – to provide hardware accelerated transitions on recent versions of WebKit browsers such as Chrome and Safari (including the iPhone and iPad).  When a user is using one of these browsers he or she is now treated to silky smooth scrolls and fades.

Other browsers fall back to the previous method, and you can now choose to fall back to an even simpler transition in this case.  We’ll be updating Impact to support other browsers as they implement the required features.
