A CSS gradient is a progression of two or more colors, in a specified manner and direction. The series of colors diffuse into each other smoothly at defined angles. Gradients are soothing visuals that provide a pleasant, aesthetic effect to the viewer.
The content on a webpage, especially if academic in nature, can be composed of multiple topics and their subtopics. A decent way to indicate the transitions between topics is to use a visual separator element. The purpose of the separator element is to inform the user that the current topic/subtopic is concluding, and now a new topic will be discussed. For example - scenes of a play, scenarios in a novel, paras in an essay. You may be writing a blog on multiple concepts, and when one concept ends, you need a visual separator, etc.
Shaking an element can be very useful. It can call for attention and focus. For example, if you have a website and have introduced a new, important section in navigation, then just adding a New label may not feel convincing enough that the users, used to seeing the main content page, will notice it. You may have an e-store and introduce a brief sale offer, and you’d like the offer text to be attention-seeking enough for the users to notice. In such cases, you can animate those elements to shake and stand out in terms of attention.
