50+ CSS Loader Animation Snippet and Examples

CSS loader animations are very lightweight and are very smooth animation without an image on your page. A few years back, for the same css loader animation we had to create gifs to animate to show online processing. And the gif was a more time taking job for creating css loader animation for the web designer. Now CSS3 replaces the loader animation gif by using CSS3 animation properties. A collection of loading animations with some cool and creative loading design animations are given below all from CodePen.

To load a page or run a program or event on a page like a form submission, we generally notify end user that some processing is being carried out and user has to wait for few seconds before it completes the errands. You can use these cool and creative examples in your page according to your design. Many JavaScripts and jquery plugins generate the animation feature for loading but the CSS3 property do the same thing with better performance and less coding. Please note that all the examples listed below are pure CSS animated coding.
