Repeat vs no-repeat (css)
This is quite simple question in css but more about memory, processing and cache.
We know that to achieve long images we will use 1px of image repeat it x or y times to paint that long gradients.
The question here is
Is that something equivalent to for loop in JS?
will that slow down a web application?
will that take more processing time?
Is that a optimized way to use?
My friends saying using no-repeat in CSS with a long sprite image will be more faster that 1px image repeat it x or y times...
Is that true?
Please answer. Thanks in advance
