Covered at Google I/O last year and in another video on the Google Chrome Developers channel, View Transitions are on the way are will provide the ability for multi-page apps to seamlessly move from one view to another.
At this point in time, it seems a bit hit and miss in my limited testing, but they work really nicely for simple examples.
Chris Coyier posted a video and link to a demo, it works really well. In fact, it's really interesting to see it work as well as it does. So much so, that I thought it would be a good thing to add to Good Gear Club for certain views but it doesn't feel like it's quite there yet.
I'll be playing with the transitions a little more and may add them in anyway so that they are available if/when this becomes a general purpose API. My biggest struggle right now is figuring out which elements to apply the attributes to... or I guess how best to move it in to my CSS.
