This is a question for both, CSS and jQuery experts that have experimented with animations.
Check out the slideshow that I am making ( http://zerobrainwash.com/sandbox/pixeleyes/?p=145 ). I am simply changing absolute position of the whole <div> and animating this transition but the result is not smooth enough, no matter whether I use jQuery or CSS transitions to animate it. Could you advice me on what is wrong and why this is happening? Or browsers are simply not good enough yet for such slideshow? I couldn't find any equivalent slideshows, the closest that I found is probably this which seems to be a bit smoother than mine http://dimsemenov.com/plugins/royal-slider/visible-nearby/ .
Any thoughts or criticism is welcome! Cheers

If you check the fps timeline you can see that you have long paint times (image-decode and image-resize) that are most likely due to the 500kb size of the pictures

Thanks davidfregoli , both of the links really helped a lot. While investigating what is the issue with my slider I realized that there is nothing I can do. It simply takes too long to paint full-screen images and animate them. I guess flash is still the best for such thing.
