Smooth animation using DHTML

Quick introduction

Since everything linked from here totals around 150kB I'll try to be short. The quickie version of the report is of course found in the summary, so read that if you're in a hurry. There's some interesting results to be found in the various test results though, so if you're serious about developing DHTML animations you should probably read the whole thing.

I've tried to make this easy to read, fast to download and user friendly, so there's only simple HTML here. Hopefully you'll like the experience. Drop me a line if there's anything you've read that you'd like to comment.
