This is a great idea. But the way it animates in (at least in chrome) could be better.

Mmmm... on FireFox no Mac does't work very well... however good idea

Yes, it's more of a proof of concept. This could be much better with some simple javascript.
I might add some just to make it work properly cross browser.
