clunky zoom within webapp
i am creating an artsy sort of web app, where the user will be using the two-finger zoom to look at the content. but it feels clunky. the zoom stutters, there's no nice smooth flow, even when i am on a fast wifi connection. my .html page plus the nine black-and-white gifs within come to about 40Kb total.
does zooming just suck in web apps, because presumably most web apps wouldn't want to use it? is my page weight too big? i've got my images and code down as small as i can go.
thanks in advance for helping a noob,
