3. Animated CSS gradient background
CSS gradients look great when executed right. If you chose the right colors, a gradient background will shine. Switching from plain colors to gradients always adds more design depth to a website. An animated gradient background is even more brilliant.

5. Pure CSS bouncing scroll indicator
Scroll indicators tell website users that there’s more content below, which will be visible upon scrolling. Almost every website needs a scroll indicator. Scroll indicators make the user curious about what lies beneath. A bouncing scroll indicator garners a lot of attention, as though it is screaming “scroll here!”.
