The turntable is more than just a hi-fi music player for the home. To the DJ, it’s also a creative tool for remixing music in real-time. The turntable gave birth to a culture of disc jockeys and is an important element of hip-hop; it also plays a role, quite literally, in the evolution of electronic music.

Turntables have had many nicknames given to them by DJs including 1200s, the 1s and 2s, and T-turns among others. The famous 1981 DJ set, The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash on the Wheels Of Steel, highlights the significance of turntables in DJing and hip-hop. Flash’s work is considered to be an early example of Turntablism, the use of turntables as an instrument.
speed/validity selectors test for frameworks.
Every framework runs in its own iFrame, thus no conflicts can happen. Tests are run selector by selector, with an interval to prevent the browser from freezing.
The WebKit version of this test includes a number of modifications. Specifically
The tests are run 250 times instead of once to show speed differences more accurately
querySelectorAll is added as a supported “library”
CSS selectors that not all implementations support have been removed to avoid distorting timing results. These will be added back in as new selectors are implemented.
Create awesome looking and engaging buttons by using CSS animations to give them all that radioactive feel.
