.find() seems to get a bad rap. Some people state that selectors are WAY better for performance, some people say that .find() is. Well, actually both can be true. Not only depending on what amount of elements you are searching, but HOW you are selecting or finding them as well.

Fading in a website background image is not generally an easy task. This is because there’s no opacity state for background images in specific. Fading a solid background is pretty easy using RGBa – not so easy for images. There’s also the issue of when you change the opacity of body (or wrapper) element, everything inside (or the children) are effected as well. In this example, I will be using jQuery to animate the effect.
