-webkit-transition and webkit-transform vs. transition & transform at run time


New Member
I'm going to give this full question so that there's a code context, but what I'm looking for is probably very simple.Here's the simple thing: Given a JQuery enabled webpage, running a script that will call something like: \[code\]foo.css("-webkit-transition-duration", (duration/1000).toFixed(1) + "s"); \[/code\]Is there a good way today to see if "-webkit-transition-duration" is the right version to use? Per CanIUse.com there is support for non-prefixed versions of this property and I'd like to create a cross-browser solution.In case more context is required:I'm working on a one-page design and using the following html pattern to create full-screen panels.\[code\]<nav role="navigation" class="nav"> <ul> <li class="selected" data-ref="1"> <a>1</a> </li> <li data-ref="2"> <a>2</a> </li> <li data-ref="3"> <a>3</a> </li> </ul> </nav> <div id="scene_1" class="scene"> <div data-picture="" data-alt="Green Moss on Branches of a Sambucus nigra"> <img alt="Green Moss on Branches of a Sambucus nigra" src="http://stackoverflow.com/images/mossy-branch/large.jpg"> <div data-src="http://stackoverflow.com/images/mossy-branch/small.jpg"></div> <div data-src="http://stackoverflow.com/images/mossy-branch/medium.jpg" data-media="(min-width: 400px)"></div> <div data-src="http://stackoverflow.com/images/mossy-branch/medium_large.jpg" data-media="(min-width: 800px)"></div> <div data-src="http://stackoverflow.com/images/mossy-branch/large.jpg" data-media="(min-width: 1000px)"></div> <!-- Fallback content for non-JS browsers.
