I’ve let myself thinking about future of Web Pages – and I’ve found an idea that may change and do some mess in the way websites are designed.
Let’s improve and evolve new in HTML5 tagvideo to as commonly used in decorative elements as PNG graphics. The way to make it more interesting is to use Alpha Channel (transparency) in videos played with video tag. Then it can be layered with CSS and with looped animations treated as more attractive visualy replacement for static PNGs.
I’d also create a plugin for WordPress based on simple idea of animated and looped frames with transparent center that would cover whole page with fixed position as a template. This way whole content could be scrolled under very enchancing visual side animated frame with transparency inside it. And just as with regular templates for web sites those frames should be listed in database of WordPress to let you browse, search and choose one you’d like to apply on your site.
