I know, I’m kind of late, but when I found out about Google’s “Do a Barrel Roll” just recently, I had to try this out myself and wanna blog about it.
(On a side note: seriously, how nerdy is it if you want to type “myself” but instead type “mysql”? Having to write this sentence was already a chore)
If you clicked the above link and if your browser is sort of up-to-date, you will have witnessed the Google website to spin about and stop again when at its original position. It did a barrel roll.
Now the interesting part is the actual techniques behind it as the whole thing is done via CSS. It makes use of two new things in CSS3: keyframes and animations.
