    Question Jquery spinning button

    Hi guys,

    Lately I find myself trying to avoid using too many hover effects, mainly because they aren't effective on tablets as they have no mouse.

    So...I was thinking of some alternatives and I thought wouldn't it be cool if the user clicked a button and it spun round on a 360 axis before sending the request for the next page.

    I can't seem to find anything, I am aware of flip and other such 3d plugins but 3d isn't what I'm after. I just want to do a 360 degree, in place rotation on a 2D axis. Can anyone suggest where I would start?

    thanks

    When being compatible with most of the web browsers that are out there, you just don't have as many options available to you.

    I agree. I blame the W3C for this bs incompatability. Their is some blame for the browser manufactures, but not as severe as the W3C. That is another story.

    Without someone like the W3C to set standards, how then are the different browser vendors supposed to supply a consistent set of features?
