Cost, Quality and Time
are the 3 very basic factors when you are making a decision, such as choosing your WordPress designer. Each are major factors of the decision, yet in any decision we can truly only get the best in 2 of the 3 areas.
For example, you can choose fast and cheap, but there will be a cost in quality. You can choose fast and high quality, but you are going to pay a higher premium for that. Of course, you can choose the cheap and high quality, but there will be a number of delays along the way.
No matter which 2 you choose to get the best in, there will be one area that is not the best....

I just completed work on a project that required the use of background animations. The task was to make a header background “shine” when you hovered over the section. My first approach was to use CSS3 transitions by placing a background image with a “shine” effect in place and then using the transitions to slide the background into place quickly, which worked extremely well… until I checked it out in Internet Explorer. Damn IE!

There are a number of online tutorials and code snippits designed to help you replace the WordPress core loaded jQuery with the hosted version of jQuery from Google.
