The advantage of this kind of usage is that one doesn’t need scalable vector images for the web anymore. The developer says, "I put a side project on "Github the other day, Simpsons in CSS. CSS is becoming more and more powerful and often with a bit of though you can replace basic graphics with CSS. The advantages of this are obviously better performance and graphics that scale. I wanted to see how much I could achieve with just pure CSS and cartoon characters seemed liked something that is very do-able."
