Learn how to create the frosted glass effect using only CSS. This cool effect gives your website popovers, popups, and overlays a glossy, glass-like feel, and gives your website more depth.

Also, since this was a lot of CSS to make a simple effect look cool, I stopped talking and added music...just this once.
