Animating Page Transitions

You can use animation in your Web site to provide interest and call attention to important information. When you move from one Web page to another, you can display a transition effect between the two pages. You can select a transition effect, and then specify when the page transition occurs, and how long it lasts. The only disadvantage of page transitions is that the browser must wait for the entire Web page to load before it can apply the transition effect. Be aware that animated page transitions are not supported by all browsers.
