A gradient creates a smooth transition between two or more colors, and is often used in graphic design to create an illusion of depth or a 3D effect. Until quite recently, the only cross-browser way to add a gradient to an element was to use a background image. With CSS3, you can generate a gradient simply by specifying its colors and shape. CSS supports both linear gradients—in which the colors fade smoothly from one to the next in a straight line—and radial gradients, which emerge from a single point with the colors spreading out in a circle or ellipse. You can also create gradients that repeat the same sequence of colors indefinitely.
