More modern technologies

After the recent integration of Web Components in the blog, I made yet another stab at using some modern technologies.

This time inspired by the Ten years of A Single Div article, my focus was on the linear-gradient() and radial-gradient() CSS properties.

They can be combined to draw almost arbitrary shapes with pure CSS.

I used this to replace all graphics on with CSS, while keeping the layout and functionality identical to the original 2005 version.

In the process of this, also some additional modern CSS features were used:
var() to simplify repeating CSS code.
animation/@keyframes to add a little fade-in effect on the hover text.
