Use of CSS3 Goodness for GMail on the iPad

by Tom Kenny (@tkenny)

An interesting note when writing translations in CSS3 for the iPad:

… it seems that 2D translations are not hardware-accelerated. But, since any 2D translation is equivalent to a corresponding 3D translation with the same translations in the x and y and no translation in the z axis, it is easy to use a hardware accelerated translate3d(x, y, 0) transform instead of a non-hardware accelerated translate(x, y) transform.
