Difficulty Level

These CSS-Only button hover inspirations are created by using tranform and transition properties which are powerful css properties to create animations and as long as we do not overdo it, we can enhance the user experience using them in our interfaces and websites. Following are 5 of the examples of cooler buttons that are animated using css.

If you are viewing this page in a mobile device, you won’t see the effects due to nature of hover effects in mobile phones. You still can see the first one since it’s a click animation.

One important thing to note is that It is a good practice to use css transform instead of transitioning properties such as left, top, margin. The reason is that if we use them the page document object model needs to be rendered by the browser on every frame of the animation which is not optimised. So try to use transformations to achieve the same effects.
