Transparent Webkit Text Effect

This repository shows a simple technique for a transparent text effect for Webkit compatible browsers. This can be useful for page/post titles or a nifty Hello, World!

Remember to setup a safe fallback for non webkit browsers. Happy hacking!



This code it released under the MIT License. Which in short means I want you to take, break, and make something with my stuff. Enjoy! A follow or tweet is always appreciated though :)
