- Go to google and do a search (for example, follow this link to search for Jeff Atwood)
- Follow the first result.
- Hit back in Chrome.
- Observe that the text that appears that says "Block all codinghorror.com results" has a "shine" affect that occurs to draw your eye to it.
This happens on all sites I follow a link from while logged in to Google using Chrome.
How is this achieved?
The HTML from the relevant section:
<img src="/images/experiments/shimmer_mask.png" style="position: absolute; top: 64px; z-index: 500; border-top-width: 0px; border-right-width: 0px; border-bottom-width: 0px; border-left-width: 0px; border-top-style: none; border-right-style: none; border-bottom-style: none; border-left-style: none; border-color: initial; left: 228px; ">
