Elliptical Radial

By default, the shape of gradient is circle. But you can also make it ellipse.

CSS code:

div {background: radial-gradient(ellipse at right bottom, red, green, blue, white);}

Gradient Color Stops

yellow 10%, green 20%, blue, white

CSS code:

div {background: radial-gradient(yellow 10%, green 20%, blue, white);}

The meaning of parameters for color stops are the same as linear gradient. [see CSS: Linear Gradient]

Sharp Color Change

When 2 color stops are at the same position, you have a sharp color change.

brown, green 20%, blue 20%, white

CSS code:

div {background: radial-gradient(brown, green 20%, blue 20%, white);}
