27- CSS Sprite for your next project
We’ve all come across the issue of efficiency when we’re slicing and coding a website. One very easy way to save on load time and pre-load any images for hover affects is to create a css sprite. Rather than having about 50 different 16×16 .png icons in an images folder, a css sprite throws all of those icons into one larger .png file. With all of these icons in one file, the browser only has to load one image to have your entire icon library pre-loaded and ready for use. The only work you have to do is space out your icons and specify their location in your stylesheet.

The result are tabs that animate without any scripting.
