Hi guys,

We're using the slider on our Australian website on our home-page: and having a noticing a few issues with Chrome for Mac.

With the first slide, "Free Web Hosting" the text to the right appears correctly, however if you leave your cursor somewhere off the slider and let the slider do it's thing you'll notice that the "Switch to Mac Deal" and "Exchange 2010" text in the slides seem to be 99% blocked. Moving the cursor over the slides then brings the text into view.

Any ideas?

    This is well-known Chrome bug. If you put absolutely-positioned element without hardware acceleration inside container with hardware acceleration, it'll behave weird.

    To enable hardware acceleration on element add rsAbsoluteEl class to it or these CSS props:

    .slideText {

    Is there an alternative way to position the text elements? I don't like the thought of having to enable hardware acceleration to display a block of text.

    Don't worry, it doesn't affect performance or memory. It's already enabled, but on parent.

    Cheers Dmitry, much appreciated! That's done the trick nicely.
