Jake works on web standards stuff for Google Chrome, focusing on performance, and making the web more competitive with native platforms.
Bringing Page Transitions to the Web
Native apps often feature transitions between states that both look great and help communicate the type of navigation to the user. Creating transitions between pages on the web is impossible, but even within the same page it's really hard to get right. The View Transitions API lets you create animated transitions between states without all the issues associated with keeping two DOMs alive simultaneously.
New APIs are coming to simplify this process, building on top of CSS animations and the web animation API, and it works across navigations! In his talk, Jake will explain to you how it works.
