Nu-school CSS and JavaScript animation shizzle, Part 17

You think you've seen everything, but the web platform continues to beguile and amaze us with cool new features for creating animations more effectively. In this talk, Chris Mills walks through view transitions, scroll-driven animations, popovers, and some more fun things besides. It won't be as good as the other 15 sequels, but it'll be better than Fast & Furious 10.
