Opera implements css transitions as well. It'd be great to include those properties in your sets here.

This gave me an idea for a recent project and I've written a plugin that enhances the $.animate function itself rather than having a seperate plugin. It simply bounces up to CSS3 when its available/appropriate. Here's the link if you're interested, I've used your codebase as starting point: http://playground.benbarnett.net/jquery-animate-enhanced/

Yesterday I've tried to extend Zepto's anim plugin to handle CSS transitions and transforms simultaneously. During doing so noticed that Opera doesn't detect property changes if the transition is applied together with the CSS and transforms. A simple setTimeout is doing wonders though.

Hellow, I've got some trouble making it work :(
this error gives me the console:
Uncaught TypeError: Object # has no method 'animateWithCSS'

I'm testing it with Google chrome browser and Firefox4.

Any idea?

@victorhqc There is a misspelling. "animateWithCSS" should be "animateWithCss"

oh gosh, thanks :)

Any chance you could slap a license on this?
