The example will only be visible in Firefox, Safari and Chrome because it uses the CSS3 Animation Property.

HTML

Now look carefully ... this markup is really easy, just create an unordered list and insert inside the links that we need, apply an .animation class every li that has a link and we will see later how the animation will apply to our links!

<ul id="panel">  
     <li><h3>MENU</h3></li>  
     <li class="animation"><a href="#">Link 1</a></li>  
     <li class="animation"><a href="#">Link 2</a></li>  
     <li class="animation"><a href="#">Link 3</a></li>  
     <li class="animation"><a href="#">Link 4</a></li>  
     <li class="animation"><a href="#">Link 5</a></li>  
</ul>  

CSS

In addition to the graphics menu, we simply set transition property and apply to the translateX property the value that should animate every time the mouse passes over the link. This example is very simple, but we got a nice effect.

/* CSS3 TRANSITION ONLY EFFECT */
#panel { 
	width:300px;
	list-style:none; 
	padding-top:30px;
	display:inline-block;
}

#panel li {  
	border-radius:3px 3px 3px 3px; 
	margin-top:5px;
	width:150px;
	background: #000000;
	background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #161616 0%, #000000 100%);
	background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #161616 0%,#000000 100%);
	background: -o-linear-gradient(top, #161616 0%,#000000 100%);
	border-left:1px solid #111; border-top:1px solid #111; border-right:1px solid #333; border-bottom:1px solid #333;
}

#panel li a { 
	color:#fff; 
	display:block; 
	padding:10px;
}

#panel li a:hover { 
	color:#00c6ff;
}

#panel li.animation { 
	-moz-transition: all 0.4s ease-in-out; 
	-moz-transform:translateX(0px); 
	-o-transition: all 0.4s ease-in-out; 
	-o-transform:translateX(0px); 
	-webkit-transition: all 0.4s ease-in-out; 
	-webkit-transform:translateX(0px); 
}

#panel li.animation:hover { 
	-moz-transform:translateX(25px);
	-o-transform:translateX(25px);
	-webkit-transform:translateX(25px);
}

HTML

This second example is no different from the precedent for markup, except for the addition of the maskclass will be used to hide the links and appear this with CSS3 transition to hover over the mask class. Each link will have its own class, this will help us in the animation of each link with the different properties from each other.

<ul id="paneltwo">  
     <li class="mask"><h3>MENU ></h3></li>  
     <li class="linkOne"><a href="#">Link 1</a></li>  
     <li class="linkTwo"><a href="#">Link 2</a></li>  
     <li class="linkThree"><a href="#">Link 3</a></li>  
     <li class="linkFour"><a href="#">Link 4</a></li>  
     <li class="linkFive"><a href="#">Link 5</a></li>  
</ul>
