I agree, had no idea what was going on (figured I didn't have IE so it wouldn't show) until I read your comment.

Some of the examples are too subtle for this flashy animations (like kerning) and some just look bad (like the word affluent in ligatures).

Otherwise, pretty cool to see though.

I thought the ligature examples looked pretty bad as well. It may have just been the font they used.

Yeah, the /fl/, /ffl/ ligatures in that font are atrocious.

Hoefler Text has much nicer ones: http://imgur.com/ofE3Z
