With powerful smartphone platforms and high-performance web browsers, there is no more excuse for laggy UI animations on a mobile web application. The “best practice” list of client-side mobile optimization is pretty well-known: use optimized JavaScript, requestAnimationFrame, event throttling, GPU acceleration, and so on. In this talk, those best practices will be put to the test in a series of practical user interface patterns, from a silky smooth kinetic scrolling example to the use of CSS 3-D to clone the infamous Cover Flow effect.
