Top 10 Best Stunning Loading CSS3 Animation

As you know, before the appearance of CSS3, to create the effects for web pages, we mainly use jQuery. Using jQuery makes the loading speed of the website slow. But since CSS3 was invented, we can create animations and replace the animated cartoon, flash and JavaScript animations in web pages.
