This is a really cool site. And I don't want to be a dick — but it drives me crazy when people just claim, "oh yeah, check out those CSS transitions," or even worse "Oh yeah, that's just CSS3."
Those scroll events are tied to your browser window, that's nothing that CSS can do, it requires jQuery to get anything close to that.
They're actually using a JS plugin called Skrollr.js which has been used all over the place. They're just animating the zoom on the objects via js. I wish we could do this CSS alone. that would be sick.
Hey CSS3 Spec people! Work this in to the spec ya?
Didn't read it, just looked at the pictures...it was about an episode of "Breaking Bad," right?
nytimes always kicking some asses! This is running pretty smooth on my macbook air.
I feel like I'm a kid reading a pop up book. That was awesome. I've got pretty slow internet and didn't have any lag issues. Bravo NYT.
Nice but incredibly laggy.
No lag on a MBA. What are you running?
