The biggest nightmare for a website owner is that his site is not loading up fast or is not cross browser compatible, because slow websites take up more maintenance and drive away visitors. According to researches and survey results the page loading time is very important aspect of the user experience. If a website takes so much time to load, visitors will start getting frustrated which makes a very bad impression and it results in ‘less traffic’.

You must be thinking that how fast the load time should really be. Well, the answer is you need to make fast things faster. Currently even 400 milliseconds — literally the blink of an eye — is too long, as Google engineers have discovered. That barely perceptible delay causes people to search less. Actually people don’t like to wait. It is human nature to be impatient. According to recent research ‘47% of consumers expect a web page to load in 2 seconds or less’ and ‘40% of people abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load’.

There are several things which make your page load slowly. We are going to talk about how to use CSS to make text effects instead of using heavy images produced by Photoshop or other editing programs.

I have collected some tutorials which demonstrate the astonishing pure css text effects and animations.
