PostCSS Will Change
title="Philosopher’s stone, logo of PostCSS" src="">PostCSS plugin to insert 3D hack before will-change property.
This plugin uses backface-visibility to force the browser to create a new layer, without overriding existing backface-visibility properties. This 3D CSS hack is commonly done with transform: translateZ(0), but backface-visibility is used here to avoid overriding the more popular transform property.
These hacks are required for browsers that do not support will-change.
Use this plugin only before Autoprefixer. It will add vendor prefixes to backface-visibility.
.foo {
  will-change: transform;

.foo {
  backface-visibility: hidden;
  will-change: transform;
