Chapter 1. Web Animation Solutions

Since the Web's initial explosion in popularity, Web designers have been pushing the limits of what is possible. In particular, multimedia, which enjoyed a brief but intense period of growth on CD-ROMs, has been redirected at the Web. The result is that video, sound, spinning logos, vibrating icons, exploding 3-D graphics, and moving pictures—what I loosely define as animation— have become almost ubiquitous on the Internet.

The irony is that the media are so far ahead of the technology that's meant to deliver them. Imagine having movies but no movie theaters.
