HTML Element Hover Fade Effect using CSS

In the previous tutorial, we have seen about how to apply the fade-in fade-away effect on an HTML element using jQuery. In this tutorial, we are going to replicate the same effect without using jQuery or any other Javascript functions.

In this example, we are doing this in CSS by changing the opacity with hover property. By using CSS, the fade effects can not be provided with the jQuery slow, fast animation effect as we have in the previous tutorial demo.
