HTML5 CSS Animated Scrolling Menu

Luckychap

This is my first step towards HTML5. This is currently tested on Chrome browser where it is awesome. It will not work on FF and definitely not on IE. I am working on it.

Just copy-paste the code in blank html file and run on chrome.

'Scroller' is simple menu which can be operated using mouse wheel. It gives amazing scrolling animation effect(Thanks to HTML5 CSS).
The code is pretty straight forward. I have used 'onmousewheel' event to handle the change.
Used HTML5 css to give animation.

Hope you all like it!!.

Any sort of suggestion is most welcome.
