Move.js is a cool JavaScript library that makes CSS3 animations simple and elegant by implementing a JavaScript syntax with tons of built-in easing functions.

With Move.js, you can do a complex CSS3 animation like a translate to the point (500px, 200px), rotate it by 180deg, scale it by .5, skew it, and alter colors within a 2-second duration with the following simple markup:
move('.square')
  .to(500, 200)
  .rotate(180)
  .scale(.5)
  .set('background-color', '#888')
  .set('border-color', 'black')
  .duration('2s')
  .skew(50, -10)
  .then()
    .set('opacity', 0)
    .duration('0.3s')
    .scale(0.1)
    .pop()
  .end();
Simple, huh? The same animation would be huge and unwieldy in standard CSS, but Move.js makes it simple and elegant.
